Teaching

Because hospitals run 24/7, so do nurses and this is reflected in our teaching.

You will work 37.5 hours a week, with shifts in your hospital and community placements. This may involve significant travel to get to some placements. If you are entitled to the SAAS student nurse bursary, you can claim back any travel expenses over £5 per day, if the cheapest route of travel is taken. If you are not entitled to the bursary, you are expected to pay your own travel.

The academic year for nurses is longer than other courses. It is 45 weeks long, meaning you get seven weeks of annual leave which is fixed for the duration of your course.

A typical week is made up of time spent in lectures, clinical skills laboratory, small tutorials, and private study.

You will work together with students from all three fields of nursing and learn through a variety of methods including case-based learning, evidence-based learning, inter-professional education and clinical skills simulation.

Assessment

Assessment methods include portfolio development, essays, exams and objective structured clinical examination.

For the MSc version of this course you will complete a dissertation on a topic of your choosing during Level 3.

Practice placement performance is assessed by a registered nurse assigned as your mentor. They will support you in your practice learning and will spend at least 40% of your placement working alongside you.

Modules

You’ll take Level 5 modules during your 3rd year of study, this allows you to graduate with an MSc qualification.
