Course content

As an adult nurse, your patients might have long-term illnesses or minor health issues, and they could be at any stage in their adult life.

On this two-year accelerated course, you’ll learn how to assess your patient’s needs and provide sensitive support, and how to collaborate with colleagues across a range of professions (including doctors, physiotherapists and dieticians).

In addition to time spent in practice on placement, you’ll have a mix of simulated and technology-enhanced learning, university attendance in shared groups, field-specific groups, or interdisciplinary learning.

Working in small groups in our Clinical Simulation Suite, you’ll learn many skills to support the development of your practice. It’s here that you’ll work on simulations of a patient’s journey from admission to discharge.

Scenarios that we’ve set our students in the past include major trauma management, with a patient involved in a motorbike accident who needs stabilising, emergency care with a patient who has suffered a heart attack, and ward management to show you the daily life of a nurse working a shift on a busy ward.

To fund your postgraduate pre-registration nursing degree, you'll be able to access standard student loans in line with undergraduate funding for pre-registration courses. Find out more about funding your MSc Adult Nursing (Pre-registration).
