The School of Health & Social Care offers pre-registration nursing across four fields 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 Nursing (Pre-Registration) - Adult Nursing (Medway Campus) programme from the University of Greenwich 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, forensic services, assessment and intervention services, and schools. Each year students spend 50% of the time on placement where they are assessed by qualified practitioners. Throughout the programme students participate in training on safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.
The Adult branch of this programme is available at both our Avery Hill and Medway Campuses. All fields of nursing start at Avery Hill in September. Adult, child and mental health nursing also start at Avery Hill in March. Adult nursing starts at Medway in January.
This programme leads to registration as a nurse and is professionally recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
