Nursing (Adult) B.Med.Sci

Course description
This course will teach you about current research, policy, and practice in adult nursing and give you the clinical skills and knowledge you need for entry into the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) professional register as an adult nurse.

You'll stay in one geographical area for all your clinical placements at one of our healthcare providers. We take a local community approach, which gives you experience in hospitals, communities and primary care services.

Your placement experiences enable you to form an integrated understanding and appreciation of local health needs and services, as well as gaining insight into future career opportunities in each practice setting.

The course is half practice and half theory. We'll teach you how to apply what you learn to a practical setting and improve your skills in leadership and problem-solving.

You'll study six units across your course (two per year): Foundations in Nursing/Health 1 and 2; Patients with Acute and Short Term Needs; Patients with Long Term and Complex Needs; Transitions to Practice; Developing Autonomy and Transitions to Practice: Managing and Organising Care.

You'll develop clinical skills throughout your course at our purpose-built simulation facility. This facility includes mock clinical ward areas, resuscitation suites, simulated theatres, simulated homes, teaching rooms and a fully equipped filming studio.

Our local health community partners are Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster, Chesterfield and Sheffield. There will be an opportunity for you to contact and visit each local community before making a decision about where you'd like to spend your placements.

You will be able to express a preference during the application process which we will attempt to accommodate. However this cannot be guaranteed.

You'll work closely with your course tutors, personal tutors and clinical partners, who will provide help, advice and support throughout you course.

This course is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). It will give you the clinical skills and knowledge you need for entry into the NMC professional register as an adult nurse.
