Nursing Studies (leading to professional registration as an Adult Nurse)

Our approach to teaching is innovative. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you'll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You'll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting. You'll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you'll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse. This course uses an innovative problem-based learning strategy to help you think about real clinical practice scenarios. A strong emphasis on cooperative learning helps you manage unfamiliar situations, make reasoned decisions, adapt to change, and plan your future learning. It's a realistic and challenging preparation for registration. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
