Student nurses practice medicine administration in the clinical skills suite.Our 3-year accredited degrees in Nursing combine extensive practice opportunities with collaborative learning informed by service users, carers and their families.

We will equip you with the professional values and field-specific competencies required to achieve national outcomes and become a professionally qualified nurse. You can specialise in adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disabilities or mental health.

Alternatively, you may wish to gain professional accreditation in two fields of nursing on a 4-year integrated Masters degree or achieve dual registration as both a professionally qualified nurse and registered social worker, or as a professionally qualified adult nurse and paramedic. We also offer a foundation degree that enables you to train to join the nursing team as a qualified nursing associate.
