Months of entry
Convert your undergraduate degree into a career in care with an accelerated route into adult nursing. As a student in the adult field of practice, you'll develop the knowledge and skills necessary to care for people in a wide variety of practice settings. These range from primary care and nursing in the community, to working within a hospital setting in acute and critical care placements, rehabilitation and ongoing care. You will work closely with a multidisciplinary team delivering holistic, person-centered care.
You'll graduate ready to register as a highly-skilled nurse, able to provide excellent care to adult patients. You'll be confident undertaking research and using evidence to develop nursing practice.
After completing this degree you'll be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the professional regulatory body for nurses and midwives in the UK.
This Masters course draws on our world-leading research to create a unique nursing curriculum. You'll learn in an environment which values scholarship, social awareness and research.
Through theoretical study, practical experience and reflective discussion, you'll hone your skills in adult nursing. We'll encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity that will support your development throughout your career.
The MSc Nursing (Adult) is subject to approval from the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the University of York. We hope to confirm details in July 2021, and we will inform applicants of any substantial changes to the programme.
