What will I learn?

Designed for registered nurses from all specialties, this course offers you a supportive, international learning environment where you will learn alongside nurses at various stages of their careers. Learning with nurses from other countries and other specialties means you will develop your awareness of different cultural approaches and ways of working. In addition, there will be some opportunities for workplace experience in an NHS, research, or educational setting, giving you first-hand insights into how healthcare is provided in the UK.

You will gain an excellent grounding in the UK’s four Pillars of Practice:

  • clinical practice
  • facilitation of learning
  • leadership and evidence
  • research and development

You are encouraged to consider the challenges and opportunities associated with nursing practice. There will be many opportunities to discuss and debate contemporary issues and the evidence base with fellow nurses, lecturers, other student groups, and topic experts during lectures, tutorials, and other timetabled sessions. You will have the option of completing a two week workplace experience. This can be done in an environment of your choice, including, health care, social care, university (such as clinical skills or sports institute), or in a research setting.

Careers:

You can progress into various careers in clinical practice, nurse education, and research. You will have developed the knowledge and skills to enable you to develop as a leader in a changing healthcare landscape. International students will have the opportunity to seek nursing employment in the UK. To be able to do this, you will apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). The stages of the application include a Computer Based Test (CBT), an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and admission onto the NMC register.
