Nursing

BSc

Our nursing courses will enable you to develop the professional attributes you need to be able to practice in a range of settings and deliver skilled, sensitive care to patients and their families. You will also benefit from the wide variety of clinical placements we can offer.

Students on all Nursing degrees initially cover basic competencies and then specialise in either Adult, Children and Young People's or Mental Health Nursing.

Why study Nursing at Dundee?

The School of Nursing and Midwifery is part of the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing and is one of the largest nursing and midwifery education providers in Scotland.

Our programmes reflect the ever changing face of health care in Scotland and address the political and ethical aspects of heath care provision.

You will gain experience in the clinical skills centres and participate in inter-professional learning with medical and other students.

"The lecturers are passionate about their subjects, which creates a very positive learning environment. They all reflect back on their own time in practice, recalling benefitting stories which helps reinforce learning."
Final year student comment from the National Student Survey 2011

What's so good about Nursing at Dundee?

Clinical Placements

A wide range of practice placements are available which will provide you with varied clinical experiences.

These include both hospital and community settings, and stretch from inner city to remote and rural locations. This will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to become a registered practitioner.

"Being able to relate theory into practice placements and having the opportunity to spend time learning from clients has been valuable."
Final year student comment from the National Student Survey 2011

During practice placements, students are mentored by a registered nurse. Additionally students will experience working alongside colleagues from other health and social care disciplines, such as medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and social work.

"The best thing about the adult nursing course is being out on placement and putting all your skills to practical use. Going home at the end of the day knowing that by spending time with patients you may have improved their stay in hospital or made them feel better is a great feeling!"
Sarah Wyngard, 3rd year student from Durham – Adult Nursing

Degree Combinations

  • BSc Adult Nursing
  • BSc Child Nursing
  • BSc Mental Health Nursing

Teaching & Assessment

This course is offered by the School of Nursing and Midwifery, which is part of the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery has a commitment to excellence in Learning and Teaching. Through evidence-based teaching methods, we equip practitioners to become lifelong learners.

Course Length

Degree Courses begin in September each year and last three years. All our Nursing pre-registration courses are full time courses.

Time Commitments and Holidays

Unlike many university courses which have long summer holidays, the academic year for nursing students is 45 weeks in duration and is divided into 50% theory and 50% practice.

On commencement of the programme, nursing students are issued a flowchart detailing the exact pattern of their theory, practice and annual leave.

The theory timetable can vary from week to week. A typical week is made up of time spent in lectures, clinical skills laboratory, small tutorials and private study. Practice time is full-time 37.5 hours a week, note, this includes shift work.

Annual leave is allocated at the commencement of the course (7 weeks per year) and is fixed for the duration of the three year course. Students will have 1 week off at Easter, 4 weeks during the summer period and 2 weeks at Christmas. Taking holidays out with these set times is not possible.

Practice Placements

Half your time at University will be spent in practice placements, and the School has access to the wealth and diversity of NHS Tayside, NHS Fife and Independent Sector practice environments for students. You will have a variety of placements giving you the opportunity to see patients and clients hospital and community settings, from inner city to remote and rural locations. You will work alongside colleagues from other health and social care disciplines. You can expect that you will have to travel to placements in a variety of locations.

Practice time is full-time 37.5 hours a week and includes shift work. Students are expected to undertake the full range of shift patterns from the outset of the course as the NHS and Independent Sector is a 24 hour a day workplace. Students will work early shifts starting at 7 or 7.30am and late shifts starting at 1pm and finishing at 9 or 10pm. Students will also be expected to be on placement at weekends - typically this would be up to 4 weekends in a 10-12 week placement. In second and third years, students will normally undertake a period of night duty.

Travel

Students are responsible for all travel costs to attend any University Campus for theory. While attending practice placements in Fife or Tayside, you are expected to meet up to the first £5 of daily travel expenses. Any travel expenses in excess of £5 will be reimbursed by the government upon submission of a travel expense form.

Shortened Programmes for Graduates

At this moment in time the School does not offer a Shortened Programme for Graduates (SPG).

Campus Options

Adult Nursing and Mental Health Nursing can be studied at our Fife Campus in Kirkcaldy. Adult Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Child Nursing can be studied at our Tayside Campus in Dundee. You can choose which campus to apply for if you wish to study Adult Nursing or Mental Health Nursing. The selection process and course at both campuses are identical.

Accommodation

Nursing students choosing the Tayside Campus are able to apply for university residences in Dundee alongside other University of Dundee students. Find our more information about our residences in Dundee. Applications are made after applicants have firmly accepted an offer.

Nursing students are also able to apply to stay in NHS accommodation at Ninewells Hospsital, Dundee and in Kirkcaldy on the Fife campus. More information about the NHS accommodation will be sent out to applicants once they have firmly accepted our offer.

During periods of practice placement students will be required to commute. Child students undertaking placements in Falkirk and/or Inverness, will be offered temporary accommodation.

How you will be taught

The nursing curriculum was one of the first approved in the UK under the new NMC standards. You will work together with students from all three fields of nursing throughout the programme, with an increased focus on your chosen field as the programme progresses. Throughout the three years you will develop the nursing skills and knowledge applicable to all fields of nursing.

We take a multifaceted approach to the delivery of our programmes, such as case-based learning, evidence-based learning, inter-professional education and clinical skills simulation. This approach is founded on flexibility, accessibility and innovation. Learning is an active process in which students have responsibility for, and ownership of, their learning within a supportive framework.

The University has a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) giving students access to learning materials and resources. This VLE is called My Dundee, and you will be given access to this once we have received your application.

What you will study - Adult Nursing

The undergraduate degree programme is three years long and modular in structure. Each year consists of 45 weeks, divided equally between University study and clinical practice.

The adult nursing course prepares you to care for individuals with a range of health conditions. Nursing care can take place in many different places including the home, in hospitals and in nursing homes so you will gain experience in all these areas while on placement.

As an adult nurse you will be taught how to provide compassionate care to adults experiencing both acute and long-term illnesses. Adult nurses are a central part of a multi-professional team including doctors, therapists, pharmacists and healthcare assistants therefore you will undertake inter-professional learning as part of your programme.

Adult nurses work closely with patients and their families often supporting them through challenging situations, which can be a very rewarding experience. Most of those who we care for and support as adult nurses are elderly and it is a privilege to support elderly people as they learn to adapt to a stage of life that often brings with it long term health conditions. The focus is on health and a positive approach to living with long term conditions.

What you will study - Children and Young People's Nursing

The undergraduate degree programme is three years long and modular in structure. Each year consists of 45 weeks, divided equally between University study and clinical practice.

This is concerned with the needs of children from birth to adolescence and through health to ill-health.

Pivotal to our philosophy is the notion of family–centred care. We recognise our responsibility to work in equal partnership with parents and carers.

Our programme also promotes the 'caring aspect' of the field. We recognise that 'caring' has the capacity to improve the social, mental and physical well-being of children and their families.

This field provides an educational experience that concentrates on developing the professional skills, knowledge and attitudes required by nurses to deliver a child and family-centred service tailored to the unique needs of each child. The programme promotes scholarship and reflective practice with students encouraged to develop responsibility for their student journey from novice to graduate nurse.

Practice placements are provided in Tayside and Fife and students will be required to travel across each of these geographical areas.

It willalso be necessary for some clinical experience to be gained in placements further afield in order to provide students with exposure to a rich and diverse clinical experience. In particular, Child Nursing students are required to have placements in Forth Valley and Inverness. Students will follow a varied shift pattern while on placement. During periods of practice placement students will commute or temporary accommodation may be arranged.

What you will study - Mental Health Nursing

The undergraduate degree programme is three years long and modular in structure. Each year consists of 45 weeks, divided equally between University study and clinical practice.

Mental health nursing is a speciality field that works with people who have mental health problems and the carers and organisations that support them. Mental health nurses work in partnership with individuals, supporting them to find ways of coping with their problems, whilst helping them explore opportunities for personal growth and recovery. As such, mental health nurses make a real difference in people lives.

The pre-registration mental health nursing team maintains excellent working relationships with NHS, voluntary and private sector partners. You will have exciting and challenging opportunities to engage with those in mental health crisis and also those with on-going mental health problems in a variety of settings. You will have opportunities to share learning experiences with other healthcare students and work with many health and social care professionals on your clinical placements.

Throughout your three year course you will be part of a learning team, with a facilitator who will provide personalised and proactive support, provided by passionate and experienced mental health nursing teaching staff with diverse clinical backgrounds and expertise. The core philosophy of the course is to inspire students to "care with commitment, compassion and curiosity".

Our values-based curriculum will equip you with knowledge, skills, and attributes to meet the challenges of the modern healthcare environment. The programme focuses on the therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient, and blends the art and science of mental health nursing, so students learn to deliver high quality, safe and effective person-centred care.

  Elective Placement

Practice Placements

Practice placements are provided across Tayside and Fife and on occasions students will be expected to travel between these areas. Students will follow a varied shift pattern while on placement.

How you will be assessed

Assessment is split equally between assessment of theory and assessment of practice. This approach reflects the Nursing and Midwifery Council's requirement that 50% of the programme is undertaken in practice. Students must achieve the required standard in both theoretical and practice assessment. Assignments are designed to align with module outcomes, content and teaching strategies. Additionally the range of strategies adopted will address the spectrum of student learning styles.

Assessment of theory uses a variety of strategies including portfolio development, essay and examination. Paper-based and on-line formats are used for some examinations.

Practice assessment is competency-based, with assessment undertaken by the student's mentor. Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is used to provide a link between theoretical and practice-based assessment.

Careers

With an academic award and professional registration in your chosen field of nursing, career prospects are good.

Qualified nurses can work in a diverse range of environments and develop their careers in clinical practice, education, research, management and education. Nurses can work in hospital settings or in the community either with the NHS or in the Independent sector.

Alternatively, jobs may be available further afield in the UK or abroad.

Further Study

As well as a fulfilling clinical career, nurses can also extend their academic qualifications through postgraduate study. On successful completion of your degree programme it is possible to undertake further study on a full or part-time basis relevant to your CPD needs.

Previous Nursing Study

SAAS confirm that they will not fund anyone with a nursing qualification onto a 3 year programme. They will only fund those undertaking the shortened route of the conversion programmes.

For applicants who have studied Nursing previously and have not completed their degree or diploma and would therefore require extra funding the School of Nursing would need to look at each case individually once and applicant has applied through UCAS and submitted all required documentation such as reference from previous institution and transcripts.

Other Funding

SAAS also administer funding for UK students for other costs such as a Childcare Allowance for Parents, a Single Parents' Allowance, Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), and some placement expenses. You should visit the SAAS website for more information.

Living Costs

  • Dundee is ranked as one of the most affordable places for students to live in the UK, and the cost of living is around 15% cheaper than the UK average.
  • As a student in Scotland, you have free access to the National Health Service. Visits to doctors and hospitals, as well as prescriptions, sight tests and dental checkups, are available free of charge.
