Adult Nursing (Kirkcaldy) BSc
School of Health Sciences
Adult nursing prepares you to care for individuals with a range of health conditions in settings such as hospitals, homes, and nursing homes
Our aim is to help you develop into a compassionate and knowledgeable registered adult nurse, ready to take on the exciting challenge of working in any modern healthcare environment. For the BSc version of this course you are not required to complete an honours project or dissertation.
You will be based in Kirkcaldy, the second largest town in Fife, 30 miles from Dundee. Our Kirkcaldy Campus has a community feel and its own clinical skills centre. We have strong links with NHS Fife, where most of your placements will be.
Nurses work as part of a team alongside doctors, therapists, pharmacists, and healthcare assistants. You will spend 50% of your time learning on campus and the other 50% on placements in hospitals and community settings.
Placements are completed in a wide variety of hospital, community, and other settings to allow you to care for patients and their families with wide-ranging acute and long term conditions.
Completing this course gives you both an academic and professional qualification that leads to you becoming a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
