IN BRIEF:

  • Gain registration as an adult, mental health or children's nurse while gaining a Masters degree
  • Uniquely in the UK available to graduates of any discipline
  • Work as part of a multidisciplinary team in a changing health care environment
  • Clinical placement opportunity

COURSE SUMMARY

On completion of this programme you will be able to:

  • Understand research, policy and other evidence in your chosen branch of nursing
  • Apply advanced knowledge when caring for client groups within legal, ethical and professional frameworks in an innovative and confident way
  • Practice as a registered adult, mental health or children's nurse
  • Assess the needs of healthy and sick adults and children in different settings
  • Understand nursing activities associated with caring for adults, children and their families

TEACHING

A blended learning approach will provide the foundation to the teaching and learning strategy by way of Seminars, Masterclasses, action learning, guided independent study, simulation and workshops.  Theoretical learning will be complemented by Field of Practice and Level specific seminar group facilitation, discussion, dissemination and formative feedback.

The course has an equal split between time spent in theory and time spent in practice.  

Applicants should be aware that in order to successfully complete the programme and be eligible to apply for registration as a Registered Nurse (RN), that they will need to evidence 2,300 hours of theoretical learning and 2,300 Practice learning (4,600 hours in total). This is a programme requirement and so may not be reflected in the allocated specified hours of learning on the academic module specifications.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment methods are varied and include assignments, presentations, observed structured clinical examinations, exams and portfolio assessment.

FACILITIES

Our Clinical Practice Wards are located in the Mary Seacole Building on the second floor. There are four rooms designed to give the look and feel of a hospital environment. The rooms are furnished with patient's beds, lockers, chairs, sinks and curtains as well as audio-visual equipment, internet and a teaching area.

We also have a number of clinical skills rooms that enhance student learning from taking blood pressure, to giving CPR and more complicated procedures. Along with nursing skills rooms where you can practice in a ward situation, there are basic skills rooms for sessions such as moving and handling.

Patient Simulators

The patient simulation laboratory provides you with the opportunity to tackle real-life scenarios in a safe and supported environment. Set up like a hospital ward, the lab contains hi-tech patient simulators that can mimic everything from the common cold to a major heart condition.

The equipment includes:

  • Emergency Care Patient Simulators: Anatomically correct, feature-rich mannequins, which can be used for the physical demonstration of various clinical signs including bleeding, breathing, blinking eyes and convulsions.
  • iStan Patient Simulators: A step up from the ECS, the iStan adds an essential human element to patient simulation. It moves, breathes, can cry out or moan with pain, providing a realistic patient for you to practice on
  • Pedia Patient Simulator: A complete reproduction of a six-year-old child enabling you to practice paediatric scenarios
  • Baby simulator: This mannequin makes it possible to interact with our most vulnerable patients - in a safe, realistic learning environment

All the simulation equipment can be linked up to some very hi-tech computer and audio-visual aids. Groups of students get to role-play a wide range of different scenarios, with a lab co-ordinator observing, running and intervening in the scenario remotely.

Sophisticated computer equipment can also provide detailed physiological information for each of the simulators under observation. The lab will help you develop the clinical skills you need but also the high level communication skills that will make a real difference to your patients.

EMPLOYABILITY

Following successful completion of this course you will be able to gain employment in the nursing field related to your choice of branch. You will be equipped to embrace the challenges that working in health care in the 21st century brings. You will be employable within the NHS and in private health care organisations and may wish to pursue a career in health care management having already experienced study at postgraduate level.

LINKS WITH INDUSTRY

We have close links with health care providers all over greater Manchester. This includes hospital, community, NHS, charity and social enterprise organisations. As a student nurse it is expected that you will spend around 50% of your time out on placement in one of these organisations and you will be is allocated a placement mentor who is there to help support you through the clinical elements of this course.
