Overview

Over the course of this three-year (Hons) Adult Nursing (Carmarthen Campus) programme at Swansea University, you will learn about the holistic needs of people from early adulthood until old age and develop the professional skills to provide high-quality nursing care in a range of clinical and community settings.

As you progress, you will develop the skills to assess, plan, deliver, and evaluate evidence-based care to promote the health and wellbeing of adults with acute and chronic conditions.

Based at our St David’s Park campus in Carmarthen, half of your teaching will take place in the university and the other half in healthcare settings. We have excellent working relationships with many healthcare providers, so you will have access to a wide range of clinical experiences across south-west Wales. These include placements in the NHS and independent sector in hospitals and community settings.

Nursing Careers

On graduation, you will be eligible to apply for Registered Nurse (Adult) status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and to register as a nurse for work in EU and EEA.

Job prospects are excellent, with 99% of our nursing graduates employed in a professional or managerial job within six months (Destination of Leavers Study, 2018)

You can expect a starting salary of £23,023 rising to £43,041 for a highly experienced staff nurse. Specialist nurses and practice managers can earn £45,000.
