The course consists of 50% academic content, of which 95% is online and 5% face-to-face, at either our Coventry, Scarborough or London campuses.

We believe this approach provides you with flexibility in your learning preferences and contextualises your learning which will help you to develop the skills you will need in practice.

Course Details

Nurses routinely have the most frequent and intense contact with patients and must be competent in recognising changes in patient condition so that appropriate action can be taken.

This blended learning course has been designed to produce professionals who are not only highly skilled and digitally competent but also caring, compassionate, effective communicators and have the capacity to be emotionally resilient. These principles are at the forefront of our teaching which aims to encompass theory, practice and immersive learning.

Coventry University has extensive experience of online learning, utilising simulation and virtual reality to enhance teaching and learning. In a recent article in The Guardian, Coventry University was listed as one of just 6 UK universities with the capacity and will to develop high-quality online education. This recognition is supported by Coventry University being ranked top of Mooclab’s World University Rankings by MOOC Performance 2021.

In modern health settings nursing students increasingly work towards becoming autonomous practitioners, taking a leadership role in decisions regarding patient care within multi-professional settings. Our course is designed to build those skills throughout your studies.

The course has been developed with patient assessment at its core. Inter-professional education and practice can maximise the strengths and skills of health and social care practitioners enabling you to deliver high quality care to service users, their families and their carers. Therefore this course will be enhanced by inter-professional learning, which should enable you to learn with, from and about other health and social care students, in order to improve patient care.

You will be encouraged to immerse yourself in learning about the needs of populations, individuals, related health and nursing services with an emphasis on using research to enhance and improve services.

This course uses innovative 5g virtual reality teaching. Watch the video at the top of this page to see how this helps you learn.
