What will I learn?

**Course overview**- Learn how to safely and effectively deliver quality nursing care with one of the UK’s leading providers of health and social care education. After successfully completing this degree course, you’ll be a registered nurse, with all the skills and knowledge you need to make a real difference to people’s lives. The curriculum addresses national benchmarks and is split between 50% theoretical study - including time spent in small groups with other students who’ve chosen the same field of nursing as you - and 50% practical clinical experience, working with a local NHS Trust on a variety of placements to build your confidence and develop the hands-on nursing skills you need. Opportunities for an overseas clinical experience is available, subject to conditions. - The School of Health is one of the largest providers of healthcare education in the North West region and as a result we have developed close links with healthcare providers across the whole of the central Lancashire area including NHS trusts across Preston & Fylde Coast; Fleetwood & Blackpool; Blackburn; Burnley; Chorley; Southport & Ormskirk and many more. We can also place students with private healthcare providers; independent and voluntary sector organisations and these learning environments provide our students with a unique insight into how healthcare is managed in all settings, not just within the NHS. - All clinical placement providers are audited according to the Nursing & Midwifery Council professional regulatory requirements for learning & teaching in clinical practice and each area has a dedicated member of academic staff attached to the placement, so that students may access support and advice. Academic staff work in close contact with the NHS trust Practice Education Facilitators and the development of these close links with practice partners enable our students to feel confident that their practice experiences are supported throughout their course.- As part of our clinical experiences you can expect to work full-time alongside a clinical mentor who will support your learning journey throughout each placement area. As a result there is no part-time route for the BSc Nursing as all students are expected to work closely with their mentors which may entail a range of different shift patterns throughout the year.**Further information**As part of the course you will have the opportunity to hear about the experiences of service users, carers, patients and public members via our community engagement and service user support groups (Comensus).
