On a BSc in Adult Nursing at UEA youâll combine first-hand clinical experience with academic study.
You will gain the skills, experience and knowledge required for everything from essential adult nursing practices through to caring for people with long-term and complex conditions, ensuring you can help meet the needs of the UKâs diverse and ageing population.
We encourage you to learn through hands-on practical experience, working in collaboration with other healthcare students. This means youâll gain unique insights into other professional perspectives, helping you cultivate the collaborative and adaptable approach that is essential to a successful nursing career.
Your studies will be split 50/50 between theory and practice. Youâll develop a robust understanding of the evidence base and skills required to provide brilliant care. And youâll gain hands-on experience across a range of placements in both acute and community settings, acquiring the skills and experience critical to safe and effective nursing practice.
With the NHS Constitution at its core, our Adult Nursing degree provides rigorous training, fantastic placement opportunities and is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

**The NHS Constitution**
The NHS Constitutionâs values underpin the behaviours and expectations of all our staff and students. As part of our recruitment process, your understanding of these values will be explored at interview and youâll need to demonstrate how those values are reflected in your own beliefs.
In each of your three years on the adult nursing degree youâll take two academic modules and clinical placements. Our learning programme combines small group teaching, lectures and self-directed study, scheduled between 9am and 7pm. Your clinical practice placements are designed to reflect the typical working patterns of a qualified nurse, and will include a minimum of 75 hours on night duty.
Youâll have access to placements in a wide variety of settings, where youâll be able to use and develop your skills and knowledge under professional supervision. Youâll work closely with adult patients, clients and their families. By the end of your course you will have built up a full individual learning profile, which will demonstrate that you have completed the assessed placement hours required for professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Thereâs a huge demand for adult nurses, so we offer an additional student intake in the Spring. Itâs a popular choice with students who want to travel or earn money following their A-level exams, but who donât want to have to defer entry for a whole year.

The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!
