BNurs (Hons) Adult Nursing


Adult nurses are primarily concerned with nursing sick and injured adults back to health in both hospital and in community settings. The focus of attention for an adult nurse is understanding not only the condition from which the patient may be suffering, but recognising the needs and anxieties which may exist - including the pressures on family life and friends. They also focus on maintaining dignity, particularly when caring for vulnerable people such as older adults and those nearing the end of their life.The mark of the professional is the ability to observe and assess what is happening with a patient at any one time and to select the most effective response.  


Our Adult Nursing course adopts a person centred approach to enable you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to provide safe and effective nursing care . It will enable you, if successful, to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to practise as a registered Adult Nurse in a range of diverse health and social care settings. As a student on this course, the experience you gain will allow you to pursue a range of pathways, in addition you will also have exposure to patients from other areas including mental health and learning disability, as well as children’s nursing. The opportunities you have coming into nursing are vast: working clinically, becoming a manager, working in a research environment, working abroad and in education. 

Nursing is a demanding vocation which requires hard work, commitment, the ability to problem solve, work independently and contribute to care as part of a team.

We have strong partnerships with our clinical practice partners.
