The aim of this course is to enable you to build on your previous diploma level studies in nursing to gain a degree in nursing studies. With both your current and future career development aims in mind, the course will provide you with the opportunity to explore contemporary issues in healthcare through detailed critical analysis and evaluation of the evidence base for effective nursing and healthcare practice.
You will be able to take either a specialist or a more general route through the course to meet your own learning needs and career aspirations.
Through critical reflection on your own nursing practice you will examine ways in which you can improve practice for those who use healthcare services by increasing your own effectiveness and the effectiveness of those within your sphere of influence. The course provides you with the option to undertake work-based learning and there is flexibility of module choice so you can match your learning needs with your learning experience.
Practice improvement is a strong theme throughout the course – your studies will focus on developing the skills you will need to ensure that service users and their carers get the best service and consequently the best health outcomes and health gains.
