Course content

Adult nurses help care for people over 18 who are ill, injured, or have physical disabilities. They check patients' progress and decide with doctors what care to give, as well as advising and supporting patients and their relatives. Although, demanding and intense work, it can also be exceptionally rewarding.

This innovative two year course will prepare you for a career in a wide range of rewarding adult nursing opportunities across both general medical and surgical wards as well as specialist units such as Accident and Emergency or intensive care. Many of our graduates take their first posts as qualified practitioners in the NHS Trusts and hospitals in which they gained experience during their training.

Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to work with qualified practitioners both to gain experience of the differing clinical environments, and to appreciate the expertise of these specialist nurses whilst on placement.

You will be compassionate with lots of patience and the ability to remain calm under pressure, with reserves of mental stamina as well. Exceptional people skills and being able to communicate clearly with a range of people from different backgrounds is also required.

You can choose to study Adult Nursing at our Southwark campus in the centre of London or at our Havering campus, Essex.
