About

Work alongside internationally renowned clinicians and nurse consultants in a wide range of specialties including wound care, digital health, emergency medicine, infection prevention and control and clinical decision making with the Adult Nursing programme at The University of Manchester.

Overview

Course description

The Adult Nursing programme at The University of Manchester is a two-year pre-registration course that will lead to registration as an adult nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The course is a collaboration between The University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. The purpose is to prepare graduates from any discipline for an exciting career in nursing leadership, education or clinical academia. The MSc comprises a 50:50 split between theory and practice. The theory component blends face-to-face and online learning, and self-directed study. Theory is delivered by experienced and internationally renowned academics and clinical colleagues, with a focus on translating high quality research evidence into practice.

Practice placements are in Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, supported by simulated practice, and clinical and mandatory skills teaching on campus. In Year 1, these will introduce you to the fundamentals of nursing practice. In Year 2, you will develop practical skills in leadership, teaching and learning, and research.

Programme Structure

The first year explores the core aspects of nursing knowledge through lectures, seminars, workshops, simulation, conferences and fieldwork. You will begin to develop a portfolio of learning and reflect on your knowledge, skills and practice experiences.You will learn about:

  • the person in the patient whose health is impacted by their environment and social circumstances;
  • an holistic approach to nursing care with the patient and family firmly at the centre;
  • health psychology and behaviour change; ethics applied to nursing and the dilemmas nurses face; and digital health and informatics;
  • biosciences applied to nursing including: anatomy, physiology, pathology and pharmacology.
