Introduction

Adult nursing is a dynamic, rewarding and highly skilled caring and compassionate career. You will develop diverse skills ranging from the delivery of health education for individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds to delivering complex care for people with multiple acute or long-term conditions.

This programme aims to develop nurses who are able to deliver person-centered, safe and effective care, working with other professions and agencies in an ever-changing and complex healthcare environment.

You will experience a variety of clinical placements and will learn using a diverse range of techniques and approaches. You will undertake clinical practice for 50% of the course, in community and hospital placements as well as independent and voluntary sector experience.

During placements, students are involved in nursing activities including providing care for a range of patients relevant to their chosen nursing pathway.

GCU's learning environment provides innovative, flexible and effective opportunities to develop understanding and nursing skills, using methods such as a blend of online and face-to-face teaching and a state-of-the-art inter-professional simulation suite.

International student start dates

For new international students, orientation events start on 14 September 2018. This extra time is specifically designed to assist new international students in settling into the UK and GCU prior to the start of general student induction and teaching.

There will be a whole host of fun and informative activities taking place during this period, including campus and city tours, as well as welcome events where you can meet other international students.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use to ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centered, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.

Professional accreditation

On successful completion of the programme, graduates are eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
