Course content

This course is aimed at those who already have a degree and some prior healthcare experience, and are committed to providing excellence in care to adult patients. Students are expected to demonstrate the Chief Nursing Officer's six C's of nursing - care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment - as they learn how to deliver outstanding healthcare in a supportive environment.

The course offers an enquiry-based, person-centred approach, building on your existing skills for learning. It also incorporates shared learning with other disciplines and professions, developing your clinical leadership skills and preparing you for practice.

Alongside the huge range of University support services, care has been taken to develop a course that supports you to become a confident and independent learner. We welcome students who have recently completed an undergraduate degree, or simply want a change of career, and academic support from personal tutors and peers can help students back into education.

The Division of Nursing sits within the School of Health Sciences, which is a research active school. All our teaching staff are experts in the field, having published key nursing textbooks, while many are also qualified nurses.
