About

The Nursing - Registered Nurse (Adult) course at Kingston University provides you with theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as an adult nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This Masters course is ideal if you are interested in a career in frontline, leadership or specialist nursing.

Overview

The Nursing - Registered Nurse (Adult) course at Kingston University provides you with unrivalled opportunities to develop your skills in caring for adults through high fidelity patient simulators and role play with actors. You will also have opportunities to learn with, and from, midwifery and pharmacy students and lecturers in simulations and shared learning with the child, and mental health student nurses to enhance your skills in caring for clients from these fields.

About adult nursing

Adult nursing is a person-centred profession with the primary aim of promoting the wellbeing and social inclusion of all people through improving or maintaining physical and mental health. Adult nurses provide care for people over the age of 18 and increasingly for older people with complex conditions. They may also care for people with a mental health condition, learning disability or children. Adult nurses work in a range of settings including A&E, critical care, medical and surgical wards, rehabilitation units, GP practices, healthcare centres, hospices and in people's own homes.

What will you study?

The first year is divided into two parts. In part one you will undertake a bridging module introducing you to the foundations of nursing and healthcare. In part two you will look at the context of nursing within a variety of client groups within your specific field of nursing.

In your second year (part three) you will learn about the analysis and application of research and evidence base and the complexities of nursing at an individual and organisational level as well as preparing for your transition to registered nurse.
