Learn how to safely and effectively deliver quality nursing care with one of the UKâs leading providers of health and social care education. After successfully completing this degree course, youâll be a registered nurse, with all the skills and knowledge you need to make a real difference to peopleâs lives. The curriculum addresses national benchmarks and is split between 50% theoretical study - including time spent in small groups with other students whoâve chosen the same field of nursing as you - and 50% practical clinical experience, working with a local NHS Trust on a variety of placements to build your confidence and develop the hands-on nursing skills you need. Opportunities for an overseas clinical experience is available, subject to conditions.
The School of Health is one of the largest providers of healthcare education in the North West region and as a result we have developed close links with healthcare providers across the whole of the central Lancashire area including NHS trusts across Preston & Fylde Coast; Fleetwood & Blackpool; Blackburn; Burnley; Chorley; Southport & Ormskirk and many more. We can also place students with private healthcare providers; independent and voluntary sector organisations and these learning environments provide our students with a unique insight into how healthcare is managed in all settings, not just within the NHS.
All clinical placement providers are audited according to the Nursing & Midwifery Council professional regulatory requirements for learning & teaching in clinical practice and each area has a dedicated member of academic staff attached to the placement, so that students may access support and advice. Academic staff work in close contact with the NHS trust Practice Education Facilitators and the development of these close links with practice partners enable our students to feel confident that their practice experiences are supported throughout their course.
As part of your clinical experiences you can expect to work full-time alongside a clinical mentor who will support your learning journey throughout each placement area. As a result there is no part-time route for the BSc Nursing as all students are expected to work closely with their mentors which may entail a range of different shift patterns throughout the year.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.

Honestly I could not recommend UCLan anymore than I am. I wholeheartedly believe that the lecturers are there to help you learn and grow as a person rather to just keep up rankings. You are made to feel like an individual and not just another student.
