Deciding to become a nurse is one of the most important decisions a person will make. The School of Health & Social Care offers pre-registration nursing across 4 branches and has excellent links with the NHS and other care providers. Nursing skills are taught and assessed in four laboratories. Learning clinical skills in the laboratories ensures that students develop competence in a safe, protected environment. In order to develop multi-professional and collaborative working, there is shared learning between nursing and midwifery students in areas such as biological and social sciences, informatics, research, ethics, health policy and management.
This programme offers both practice and theoretical learning in a variety of institutional and community settings. The programme has four routes. For adult and child nursing, placements are in hospitals and the local community, such as GP practices and with community nurses and health visitors. Mental health and learning disabilities nursing placements are much more community-focused, in clinics, health centres and schools.
Graduates have employment opportunities in the National Health Service and Primary Care Trusts locally and nationally and in all branches of nursing
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
