Pick from four specialist fields – adult, child, learning disabilities, and mental health. Whichever one you choose, your degree will be approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). You’ll spend 50% of your time in practice which will be undertaken in hospitals and community settings within the NHS, local authority, independent and voluntary organisations. As soon as you graduate you’ll be eligible to register as a qualified nurse.
And you can gain eligibility to register with the NMC as a qualified nurse in two fields with our four year MSci Nursing (Hons).
We also deliver an innovative suite of programmes which offer eligibility to register with the NMC as a qualified nurse while also enabling you to apply for registration with Social Work England as a qualified social worker: MNSW (Hons) Adult Nursing & Social Work, MNSW (Hons) Children’s Nursing & Social Work, MNSW (Hons) Learning Disabilities Nursing & Social Work, and MNSW (Hons) Mental Health Nursing & Social Work.
Be at the forefront of integrated healthcare with our MSci (Hons) Nurse Paramedic (Adult) course, combining nursing and paramedic practice. Unique to the UK, successful completion of the course provides eligibility to register as an adult nurse with the NMC, and as a paramedic with the Health and Care Professions Council.
If you want to care for diverse patients, hone your skills with a broad range of practical experiences, and qualify to provide clinical support for registered nurses, complete our Foundation Nursing Associate course, gaining eligibility to apply for registration with the NMC.
If you already hold a non-nursing degree, our two-year MSc Nursing programmes provide a route for graduates to gain eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a professionally-qualified nurse.
And if you’re a qualified nurse holding current registration with the NMC, you can also train with us in a second field of nursing. Our PGDip Nursing courses, one-year full-time and 18-months part-time, enable you to undertake an additional professional role in adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disability nursing or mental health nursing, and achieve dual registration.
