This section provides an outline of the content of this Nursing BN (Hons) course. Each year you'll study a series of modules, some of these are compulsory and others can be selected from a range of optional modules.
Studying to be a nurse is a practice based activity with 50% of the course spent in clinical practice and developing competence that will enable the student to enter the NMC’s register. Nursing students can, in the UK, study in one of four areas or ‘fields’ of practice: adult nursing, mental health nursing, learning disabilities nursing or children’s nursing; applicants willneed to apply for a specific nursing field when applying to UCAS. Nursing students will be required to demonstrate their achievement in practice within the following four domains: professional values; communication and interpersonal skills; nursing practice and decision making; leadership, management and team working.
Course modules will inform and underpin the four domains in order to demonstrate in the first year ofthe course the skills and relevant professional behaviours that ensure the safety and protection of people of all ages, their carers and families, along with relevant professional values and attitudes expected of a nurse. In the second year you are expected to work more independently, in a safe and increasingly confident manner, making the most of opportunities to extend knowledge, skills and practice. By the end of the third year, you will have had to achieve both generic and field specific competencies required for entry to the register.
