We understand that real-world experience is crucial to developing your skills and knowledge as a trainee nurse. That's why 50% of your time on our MSc Adult Nursing course will be spent on placement in a variety of clinical environments, including accident and emergency, medical/surgical, older adults, palliative care, and hospice nursing.
As well as this, you'll build your confidence and gain a competitive edge by developing practical skills in simulated 'real life' settings, using our dedicated facilities. These include mock wards, simulated home spaces, and our brand-new immersive simulation room.
What's more, if you study our MSc in Nursing and are eligible for support from the Student Loans Company, you'll also be eligible to receive an NHS grant of at least £5,000 per year of study, which does not need to be repaid. See the Fees and Funding tab below for more information.
You will graduate with a highly sought-after postgraduate degree in nursing, eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), and qualified to enter an NHS role with a Band 5 salary (£28,407-£34,580 per year for 2023-2024).
On this course you will...
- Have access to first-rate placement opportunities through our excellent partner links, developed over our long history of working with the industry.
- Be part of an intimate cohort, benefiting from close tuition from the nursing team who will be on hand to provide personalised support throughout your studies.
- Have access to a range of technology to enhance your learning, including clinicalskills.net, OCULUS (a virtual reality headset for simulated activities), and a Pharmacology and Prescribing Resource.
- Start making a meaningful difference from the moment you begin your course placement, and long into your career as a compassionate and person-centred adult nurse.
