Becoming a nurse
Nursing is a dynamic, people-focused profession, requiring not just technical and practical skills, but communication skills and management ability.
Nurses of the future will practice differently and our three year BSc (Hons) Nursing or two year PGDip Nursing programmes will ensure that you are ideally equipped to meet the demands of the modern nurse. When student nurses graduate they will have the high level of skills needed to care for people in their particular field, but will also have the range of skills needed to provide essential care to anyone in any setting.
The Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) has stipulated that student’s graduating from the BSc (Hons) or PGDip Nursing programmes will need to be:
- more independent and innovative and able to use higher levels of professional judgement and decision-making in an increasingly complex care environment;
- able to assess and apply effective, evidence-based care safely and with confidence, managing resources and working across service boundaries;
- members, and often leaders, of multi-disciplinary teams;
- able to provide leadership in promoting and sustaining change and developing clinical services.
