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 you might 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.
