ALL ABOUT THE 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.
