Adult Nursing

A learning experience firmly rooted in current practice.

The Department of Adult Nursing encompasses the range of nursing skills required in the care of adult patients and service users.

Student nurses will first and foremost learn clinical nursing skills that underpin a role as a qualified practitioner, before moving on to specialised modules such as Acute Adult Nursing, and Recognising and Responding to a Critically Ill Adult.

What we offer

We also offer a range of flexible Continuing Professional Development courses designed to help qualified staff gain a better understanding into specific areas of nursing or to simply update and refresh their skills.

We aim to provide a high quality of teaching to students wishing to pursue a career as a qualified nurse, through our range of courses.


We work in partnership with clinical practitioners and other departments across the Faculty of Health, providing a learning experience that is firmly rooted in current practice.

Students learn through a mixture of practice and theory based exercises that are enhanced by state-of-the-art facilities, such as virtual learning environments and a dedicated skills suite.

Your experience

You will experience clinical placements in a number of settings, such as critical care or community practice. Each placement is fully supported by qualified staff who are on hand to help you make the most of studies.
