At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
Research has shown that enhancing the skills of qualified nurses to degree level globally is associated with lower mortality rates, fewer medication errors, and other quality care indications. In response there is currently a national and international drive towards an all-graduate profession and a recognised need for educational programmes to upskill qualified nurses to degree level. Please note that this course is for qualified nurses only and not for pre-registration nurses.
There is contemporaneous growing awareness that health is a global issue influenced by factors that extend beyond national borders. The need for nurses in all countries to be educated to mobilise knowledge and engage in critical reasoning and ethical conduct to provide contextually appropriate healthcare and globally connected teams is increasingly being recognised.
This programme will expand the choice available to national and international nursing students who wish to develop their nursing studies at Keele University. Students will be able to undertake one year of full-time academic study or up to five years of part-time study, without assessed practice outcomes, to enhance their critical thinking, leadership skills and ability to anticipate, plan and implement the changes that are required to improve the quality of nursing care in the dynamic context of global challenges to contemporary nursing practice.
The programmeâs objectives will be aligned with the World Health Organisation Strategic Directions for strengthening Nursing and Midwifery services, the International Council of Nurses Career Development in Nursing and the Modernising Nursing Careers recommendations. Each of these documents clearly identify a series of priorities and actions intended to prepare nurses to lead and coordinate care in new environments determined by the changing healthcare needs of patients, clients and society.
