  • Supported by a team who really understand what it’s like to be an adult nurse, you’ll learn through lectures, seminars, group work, simulation and role play.
  • You'll have opportunity to learn key clinical skills and engage in simulation-based learning within a safe environment utilising human patient simulators to enhance your confidence, competence and understanding of patient care.
  • You’ll undertake clinical placements throughout the course in a variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, in the community, as well as voluntary and private sectors.

The course aims to help you become a confident, competent, caring and compassionate nurse. From day one, you’ll get the opportunity to learn in a supportive, forward-thinking and well-connected environment. You’ll explore all aspects of nursing, from the fundamentals of providing care to more advanced topics such as complex needs, and leadership and management. You'll develop a range of specialist skills including communication, decision-making, team working and upholding professional values, as well as practical and theoretical skills in order to help and achieve your full potential as an adult nurse and meet the NMC Standards.

Career Prospects

Nothing can really replicate working in the real-world, which is why practice placements are essential and a compulsory part of the course. The Nursing and Midwifery Council require you to complete the minimum of 2300 hours over the three years in order to obtain registration. Each year you'll complete two blocks of placement.

You'll have the opportunity to complete your practice learning experiences in a range of healthcare environments including NHS Trusts, private and voluntary organisations such as hospices, nursing homes and community settings. You'll be supervised throughout your practical experiences by a qualified professional who will provide you with any required help and advice. In order to provide you with the broadest professional experience possible, practice experiences are generally offered across West Yorkshire and occasionally beyond, covering 24 hour care including evening, weekend and night shifts.
