ALL ABOUTTHE COURSE
Our Nursing programmes embody a shared philosophy that represents the values and beliefs of key partners, including: students, patients, service users and families, practice colleagues and university staff. Theoretical underpinnings of the philosophy include: nursing ethics, personalised care, and a safety model ensuring the safety and protection of people of all ages and their carers and families.
Key concepts support the development of professional behaviours, inter-professional working, values and attitudes expected of a compassionate nurse, such as: connectedness, emotional intelligence, and moral responsibility and creativity.
You will work with staff and clinical partners as co-producers in your learning experience. A coaching approach to personal tutoring will unlock your potential and character development as a professional nurse. A wealth of facilities at university are available to you, including formal teaching, group and one-to-one sessions, a comfortable and enriching learning space with state-of-the-art-clinical and immersive simulation suites.
Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, presentations, OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations), and examinations. The grades from formal summative assessments count towards your module mark.
You will work alongside a practice supervisor and assessor in the clinical practice areas where you will experience a wide variety of care-giving settings.
You will be expected to work the same shift patterns as your practice supervisors (including weekends and night duty) and will need to be able to travel to and from clinical placements.
You will spend half of your time at the University and the other half working in a range of clinical areas including the NHS, Private, Independent and Voluntary organisations.
