Studying nursing at the University of Wolverhampton will provide you with challenging opportunities across a range of diverse health and social care settings, allowing you to develop the skills to make a difference in peopleâs lives.
Adult nursing is diverse and primarily concerned with promoting health and nursing sick or injured adults back to health, or helping them to adjust to their condition in both hospital and community settings. Adult nursing also focuses on maintaining dignity, particularly when caring for vulnerable people such as older adults and those nearing the end of their life.
Nursing is a demanding vocation, which rewards your hard work by enabling you to make a contribution to the lives of your patients, service users and their families.
As a student on this course, the experience you gain will allow you to pursue a range of pathways. The opportunities you have coming into nursing are vast: working clinically, becoming a manager, working in a research environment, working abroad and in education.
Among the skills youâll learn are the ability to problem solve, work independently and contribute to care as part of a team.
As an adult nurse, you will have exposure to patients from other areas including mental health and learning disability, as well as childrenâs nursing.
We have strong partnerships with our clinical practice partners.
You will be taught in our new state-of-the-art skills facility in Millennium City Building. The new skills labs have an immersive simulation suite, meaning we can change the environment without moving the students â so we can recreate a road traffic accident, simulate someone who is having an acute mental health crisis, or produce an imitation intensive care unit. Through these simulations, you will get a sense of the environment you may end up in in clinical practice and apply appropriate responses.
You will gain hands-on experiences in a variety of hospital, community and excellent nursing/residential homes, where you work alongside a range of healthcare and other professionals. You will experience opportunities for inter-disciplinary learning across all nursing pathways and with midwifery, social work and social care.
When you apply to Wolverhampton, we provide you with a list of all of our placement providers. You then get to select a first and second choice as to where you would like to spend your time in practice. Students always evaluate this well as it means you get to know your local Trust â the Trust gets to grow their own workforce, and you as the student have a greater chance of earning a job at the end of your course.
You may apply your new skills during an international placement opportunity, in countries such as Spain, Finland and Norway.

Application deadline details:
I met some lovely people at Wolves, and had a fantastic time here. The town was alright, certainly not as bad as everyone says – you just have to be prepared to go on the tram to Brum if you want some variety on your nights out, but there’s loads of shops in town so you’ll never want for anything. The lecturers and staff were fantastic, and there are loads of amazing sports facilities there with some great teams that really helped me make new, lasting mates.
