Nursing BSc Welcome Pack

Welcome to Nursing BSc 2022.

Bsc (Hons) Nursing Degree Programme for Adult nursing, Mental Health nursing, Learning Disability nursing and Children and Young people’s nursing.

Congratulations on your acceptance of a place on our Bsc (Hons) Nursing Degree Programme for Adult nursing, Mental Health nursing, Learning Disability nursing and Children and Young people’s nursing.  We welcome you to the programme and are looking forward to meeting you all. The next three years will certainly prove to be exciting, challenging and rewarding, as you prepare for your future professional career as a nurse in your chosen field.

The first year of your studies will be undertaken combined across all 4 fields of nursing but over the first year you will also have opportunities to meet other students studying for the same field of nursing as you.

The course is divided into 50% practice and 50% theory. During each year you will study 3 theoretical modules and have 3 practice placements where you will work the full range of day and night shifts.

Your theoretical learning will be blended learning; this means that there will be a mix of independent study, online learning activities and face to face activities on Campus.

There are over 40 members of the wider teaching team across Adult, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health and Children and Young People’s Nursing and you will meet them over the coming weeks of the course.
