Two student nurses hone their skills in the Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre.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 disability nursing or mental health nursing.

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.
