Course content

Approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)

Adult nurses need to be able to demonstrate competence in the fundamentals of nursing care across the patient’s lifespan. We recognise that as the context of healthcare delivery is changing, it is essential for nurses to be able to work flexibly, inter-professionally and collaboratively in a way that is meaningful and relevant.

Our curriculum is designed to give graduating Adult Nurses the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to influence improvements in practice, and support them to develop their own professional responsibility towards advancing the profession.

Our master's degree gives you the chance to undertake an Adult Nursing course leading to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The PG Cert second registration course offers qualified nurses (child, mental health or learning disability) the opportunity to gain registration as a registered adult nurse whilst also receiving an academic award. Both courses are available part-time and full-time on the Oxford and Swindon campuses.
