Nursing

Nursing is an extremely challenging, rewarding and unique profession that involves a diverse range of skills and attributes, including being able to work independently and as part of a multi-professional team.

A student nursing associate examines a drip while using the clinical skills facilities.

As a registered Nursing there is a wide choice of career destinations ranging from hospitals to community, teaching and research, specialist roles, and management. Graduates from our programme enjoy excellent employment opportunities working within the North West, throughout the UK, and abroad.

We offer four fields of Pre-Registration Nursing, all approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Learning in practice

As an Edge Hill University nursing learner, you will spend up to 50% of your programme in a placement area, although you will also engage with virtual and simulation-based learning opportunities. All this learning will enable you to put the theoretical aspects of nursing you learn in university into your nursing practice.

The University aims to give learners the best experience possible whilst increasing their knowledge base from across a variety of safe learning environments. The University encourages students to be proactive in developing relationships with educators in practice such as Practice Supervisors and Practice Assessors, Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs) as well as identifying and seeking further learning opportunities themselves. These opportunities may include short visits to areas of interest and with clinical relevance to a specific nursing field of study, or shadowing another member of the multi-disciplinary team working in that practice area.

The Faculty maintains a close relationship with colleagues from practice which includes the NHS, private, voluntary, independent and social care sectors. We have a diverse and wide range of learning environments from these sectors, such as medical wards, surgical wards, nursing and care homes, prisons, high secure environments, community settings, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), elderly care facilities, schools and pre-school nurseries. These practice learning environments range throughout the North West and neighbouring geographical areas. This is an extensive area which we would encourage you to become familiar with, as your practice experiences may be allocated from across the whole geographical location but predominately within the Cheshire and Merseyside region.

Learners will have scheduled, practice learning placements, where you will be supported by Practice Supervisors and assessed by a Practice Assessor, usually from that organisation. Learners also have an Academic Assessor whose role is to collate and confirm the student’s achievement of proficiencies and programme outcomes in the academic environment for each part of the programme. In addition, the University has a Practice Education Team who are dedicated and experienced, practice focused, academic staff who, provide support for all practice learning environments to ensure successful achievement of the required competencies in practice learning for learners. You may see these Lecturers in Practice Learning during your practice experiences  and will be able  discuss how well you are settling into your placement and your progress of learning in practice.

Your progress will be assessed on across each practice experience by a Practice Supervisors and Assessor and as you move through the programme, your skills and confidence will develop and you will be encouraged to perform increasingly complex activities.

All your  practice learning experiences, where practice assessments take place,  necessary for award and eligibility to register with the NMC will take place in an audited learning environments and meet the NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (2018).
