Adult Nursing

This course is the first of its kind in Scotland and ultimately prepares students for professional registration with the nursing and midwifery council (NMC) as an adult nurse. It is aimed at those with an appropriate degree in health, biological or social sciences, nursing or a related subject who wish to change career path. This course reinforces Scotland's health priorities and will develop your abilities to make a valuable, credible and significant impact on the health of the population. It builds on your existing knowledge and skills acquired from both previous academic study and experiential learning. There is a strong evidence-based focus which develops existing research skills and knowledge. While highlighting the differences and uniqueness of each field of nursing, the course also focuses on the shared learning values and the commonalities of the profession of nursing as a whole. Throughout the course you will engage in a combination of theory, clinical simulation, reflection, personal development planning and practice learning experiences. Ongoing assessment, practical experience and the use of clinical simulation will develop nurses who are fit-for-practice by the end of the course.
