This will involve developing the professional knowledge, skills and behaviours to care for people across the lifespan, (pre-conception to end of life) with diverse needs (physical, mental health and learning disabilities) in a range of settings (home, community and inpatient settings). You will spend equal time on theory and practice to meet the requirements of the programme.
By the end of programme, you will be familiar with the concept of reflective practice, lifelong learning and will have a comprehensive portfolio. You will have a repertoire of clinical skills which you will be able to transfer and adapt appropriately enabling you to work in a variety of healthcare settings. On completion of the programme you will have completed a FdSc Nursing Associate, which is registrable with the NMC. Completion of this programme will allow you to top up to BSc practice development or APL up to a maximum 50% registered nurse programme in any of the 4 fields of nursing (adult, mental health, learning disability or child).
