About

Adult nurses play crucial roles in healthcare settings by restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families, and responding to the varied healthcare needs of individual patients or communities.

Career opportunities are varied, with registered nurses working for the NHS or the private sector, for medical charities, voluntary organisations, in community care or the education sector. As well as prospects in the UK, global career opportunities are a very real option (subject to country specific criteria).

During this Nursing with Registration (Adult Nursing) (Hons) programme from De Montfort University – thanks to strong links with service providers across the region – we are able to offer a range of placement opportunities embedded within all three years of the course.

In addition, you’ll study a range of topics including foundations of nursing practice, professional responsibility, health promotion, holistic nursing interventions, analysing evidence, complex care needs, responding to altered health needs, contemporary issues in nursing and working in partnership with service users and carers.

Graduate Careers

The qualification enables you to practice anywhere in the UK, EU plus countries such as Canada, USA and Australasia (local registration required).

Once qualified, our postgraduate study opportunities further enhance your knowledge and skills; including Masters Degrees, Learning Beyond Registration modules, professional Doctorates and the Physician Associate Studies MSc.
