What our students think

Career path

The impact of recent change and modernisation on the health services has inevitably affected the management of care. Many nurses will need to be able to work across care settings and manage large patient groups with co-morbidities. This is reflected in the flexibility of the award in which you have the option to choose your own focus of study.

As the nursing profession becomes all-graduate, studying this award ensures you will have a similar qualification to newly registered nurses and will enable you to guide and support future nursing students undertaking the degree course from 2011.

What skills will you gain?

This programme covers a variety of skills important for the development of a qualified nurse in a way which brings together theory and practice. Graduate nurses will reflect a knowledgeable and enterprising approach to healthcare and adopt a critical, analytical and imaginative approach to nursing practice.

1. Critically reflect on professional expertise, clinical judgement and ethical decision-making skills used in the collaborative provision of healthcare in the multicultural setting.

2. Critically appraise the research underpinning nursing practice and modern healthcare and apply knowledge in an enterprising way (including the use of advanced technologies appropriate to the role).

3. Critically evaluate strategies of leadership and communication and the influence of personal and professional values in leading, and taking a substantial role in the local, national and global community.

4. Critically analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of quality assurance and risk management strategies to create and maintain a safe environment.

5. Critically reflect on the role of continuing professional development and strategies for career advancement.
