Nursing is one of the most rewarding, exciting and valued professions. Our Nursing Practice (Adult) course will give you the essential skills and internationally recognised qualification you need to work as a caring, committed, competent and compassionate healthcare professional all over the world.
Half your study time will be spent gaining real-world experience in NHS placements at hospital and community-based settings across two counties. Here you’ll be able to develop your evidence-based clinical skills, critical thinking and leadership skills within a varied learning environment.
Starting in 2018/2019, we have partnered with the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) to offer Golden Tickets to all adult nursing students at the start of their third year of study. This guarantees you a job at either the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital or the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford after graduation.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award:
BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice (Adult)
We have excellent partnerships with University Hospitals of North Midlands, Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Hospital Trust and Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to name a few. Your placements will be selected due to future career relevance, rather than location, so you may need to travel for your working experience.
From day one, you’ll start to develop the essential care skills and will integrate theory with practice by completing a variety of clinical placements. Throughout the course, you will gain a plethora of skills and knowledge that you will be able to apply to future roles after graduation when you register as a fully qualified adult nurse.
You will spend 50% of your time in clinical practices across a variety of hospital and community settings. You will be required to travel to placements in various locations and work shifts across the 24-hour period to gain the full range of learning experiences. Your work could range from providing care during a time of sudden or severe illness, to helping someone manage a life-long illness.
The course operates on a modular basis. Each credit taken equates to a total study time of around 10 hours. Total study time includes scheduled teaching, independent study and assessment activity.
All students take a total of 120 credits per level and 360 credits for the degree as a whole. Your overall grade for the course and your degree classification are based on the marks obtained for modules taken at levels 5 and 6.
This course has two start points, one in September and one in March. These start points have different UCAS codes.
Recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for the purpose of registration as a qualified nurse (adult).

Open Days give you the best experience and insight to courses, people and facilities that interest you. Make your choice easier and come meet us.
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory practicals. Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups of around 16-18 students. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor at least twice a year. You will be taught in first-class learning spaces throughout your course.
Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.
In addition to the excellent support you will receive from your course teaching team, our central Academic Skills team provides group and one-to-one help to support your learning in a number of areas. These include study skills (including reading, note-taking and presentation skills); written English (including punctuation and grammatical accuracy); academic writing (including how to reference); research skills; critical thinking and understanding arguments; and revision, assessment and examination skills (including time management).
Our Student Enabling Centre supports students with additional needs such as sensory impairment, or learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
You will normally receive feedback on coursework assessments within 20 working days following the date of submission. Examination feedback may take a variety of formats. However, as a minimum, generic feedback will be made available to all students who take written examinations.
Your study time will consist of class contact hours, self-directed learning, assessment and placements where appropriate. Your actual contact hours will depend on the subject area, on the option modules you select and professional body requirements. A typical composition of study time for this course is:
When not attending lectures, seminars, laboratory or other timetabled sessions, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve utilising a range of digital resources including our virtual learning environment; reading journals, articles and books; working on individual and group projects; undertaking research in the library; preparing coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for examinations. Your independent learning will be supported by a range of excellent facilities. These include the library, open access computer facilities, informal learning zones, a range of laboratories and performance and studio spaces.
You will be taught by an expert teaching team whose expertise and knowledge are closely matched to the content of the modules on the course. The team includes senior academics and professional practitioners with industry experience. Postgraduate research students who have undertaken teaching training may also contribute to the teaching of seminars under the supervision of the module leader. Our teaching is research-informed and 72% of our full-time staff are Fellows of the Higher Education Academy.
