**This course has September and January intakes.**
**Summary**: Do you want to make a difference to patients and their families, now and in the future? This adult nursing degree equips you with the knowledge and skills required to do this and to develop a leadership role within the health and social care team.
**Course details**: This course enables you to care for adult patients who may have physical, emotional and social care needs, in a range of hospital and community settings. It develops your clinical decision-making and interpersonal skills, and your ability to provide high-quality person-centred compassionate nursing in a safe and caring environment. It is also a major step towards an exciting and rewarding career. To be a nurse and to share people's healthcare experiences, in sometimes very difficult and emotional times, is a privilege. The public places high expectations and levels of trust on nurses, and the course develops practitioners who can meet these expectations. It is hard work and challenging. Therefore to work within the healthcare sector it is essential that you are able to demonstrate the core values embedded within the NHS Constitution: working together for patients, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives and everyone counts. Throughout the course, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to participate in a shift pattern rota or work weekends.
**After the course**: On successful completion of the course you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council on the nurses' part of the Professional Register (Adult Nursing). A diverse range of career opportunities are available within the NHS and private sectors in the UK and overseas. This course has been designed to prepare you for the challenges and demands of contemporary and future nursing, health and social care practice. It also provides a stepping stone from which you can further develop your expertise in the fields of nursing practice, leadership, research, education and consultancy.

50% of the learning time is spent engaging in University or self-managed learning activities (theory) and 50% of the time is spent within placement allocations (practice).
The teaching week during theory/study blocks is Monday to Friday and may involve some evening sessions. During practice allocations you are required to complete the shift patterns allocated to you by your mentor or supervisor. These will include early starts (for example a shift may start at 7.00am and finish at 8.00pm), night duty and weekend shifts.
The structure and sequencing of University and placement-based learning means that holidays are fixed - it is not possible to take holidays outside of the set dates.
A variety of assessments are used to measure your progress and achievement of module outcomes and practice competencies. Examples include written assignments, reflection, case studies, examinations, poster presentations and projects. You are also assessed in practice each year through a portfolio of evidence.
