Adult nurses work in hospitals or in the community, offering support, education and care to adults and their families and carers. On this course you will experience the realities of contemporary 24-hour service provision when caring for adult patients across all aspects of the health/ill health continuum.
When attending the University you will be welcomed into a relaxed and friendly environment in which to learn. A wealth of facilities are available to you including formal teaching, group and one-to-one sessions, a comfortable and enriching learning space, and state-of-the-art-clinical set ups with adult simulators.
50% of your studies will be spent in hospital and community settings, within the NHS and independent sector, where you will spend time in a well-supported environment, working alongside qualified nurse mentors.
Year 1; You will acquire the essential knowledge, skills and professional attitudes needed to meet the needs of the users, carers and significant others. You will develop knowledge of concepts of health, public health and health promotion including an awareness of factors affecting health within a diverse and multi-cultural society. Year 2; You will apply essential knowledge, skills and the professional attitudes needed to deliver and promote holistic care of mental and physical health across the life span by analysing decision-making, problem solving and prioritising skills in nursing practice. We also explore which people access adult services and consider how we protect patients, carers and relatives who use our services. Year 3; You will prepare for the transition from student nurse to qualified professional nurse both professionally and autonomously in order to manage yourself and others effectively.
Application deadline details:
Manchester is a legendary party city, with loads of things to do every night and lots of things catered to students. The facilities at the Uni are amazing, they’re constantly doing it up and there’s loads of space and computers in the Library now, makes studying so much more relaxing. The staff are all really helpful, and my tutors were incredible – really interesting intellectuals, down to earth and with plenty of great advice and feedback to offer me.
I have genuinely enjoyed my first year at university immensely. The course has made me think and question my ideas, allowing me to critique my own work to improve it, I believe the extensive group work has given me the confidence to decide for myself if something I've produced is good, and be confident in my decisions. My tutors have been lovely, and with the small class sizes all of my tutors know my name, where I'm from, what my style is, my strengths and weaknesses and how I want to go into the photography industry in a particular genre. I've been allowed access to equipment and techniques, I hadn't even thought to try before. The university also offers a lot of student jobs, during term time and over the summer. these jobs can be anything from office work, or showing people around on open days, but they pay exceptionally well and inform you on new jobs frequently.
