Months of entry
Our approach to teaching is innovative. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you’ll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You’ll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting.
You’ll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you’ll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse.
You’ll spend half your time gaining practical experience in a wide variety of community and clinical settings.
