Adult Nursing

The course follows a modular structure; each module is integrated with clinical placements and is assessed independently, so there are no final examinations; students spend 50 per cent of their time in university and 50 per cent on clinical placements; assignment submission dates are spread throughout the academic year; the modules are designed to complement each other and to build sequentially upon earlier course content; all assignments require students to integrate theoretical and research-based knowledge with critical reflection upon nursing practice.
