The Masters in Adult Nursing (MAN) aims to create an autonomous nurse with the clinical and leadership skills to synthesize data that will optimize the best possible patient care for adults.
This two year route is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated graduates, looking to advance their career within the nursing profession. This course has been closely developed with local Trust partners to reflect the increasing and rapidly changing requirements in patient care provision.
The course is comprised of 50% theory and 50% practice. As well as graduating with a Master’s Degree, upon successful completion you will be able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and practice as an Adult Registered Nurse.
What happens on the course?
The two year full time course will focus on the acquisition of nursing skills in order to manage safe effective evidence based care to patients, through a range of relevant clinical placements, whilst undertaking the shift patterns of professional nurses. Students will be supported by appropriately qualified and motivated practice assessors and practice supervisors. This will facilitate the development of nurses that have advanced caring skills and the ability to improve quality and drive health care services.
During the first year of the course Masters in Adult Nursing and Masters in Mental Health Nursing students are taught together which offers a unique opportunity for the development of an awareness of the interrelationships between physical health and mental health which are vital in relation to the challenges for nursing in enhancing person-centred care provision.
The development of complex adult nursing practice will be acquired from a variety of community and acute settings reflecting the key drivers within the health sector. Academic mastery will be cultivated through enquiry based learning approaches with opportunities for skills simulation in our laboratories. Learning will be supported by academic experts and researchers in the field of nursing and interprofessional learning with other healthcare disciplines.
The Faculty of Education Health and Wellbeing series of seminars and lectures are open to the public and gives you the opportunity to visit the University. The subjects span across education, sport, social care, psychology, health and wellbeing, bringing you a variety of engaging speakers and experts from the University of Wolverhampton and many other UK universities, visit www.wlv.ac.uk/events
