Course content

This course is aimed at those who already have a degree and some prior healthcare or related experience, and are committed to providing excellence in care.

We welcome students who have recently completed an undergraduate degree, or simply want a change of career. Academic support from personal tutors and peers is in place to help mature students and other students returning to education after a short break.

Teaching follows an enquiry-based, person-centred approach, which will build on your existing skills. It also incorporates shared learning with other disciplines and professions, developing your clinical leadership skills and preparing you for practice.

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.
