Our Adult Nursing degree programme adopts a contemporary person-centred approach to health care that prepares students to meet evolving health needs.
Adult Nursing at Keele develops adult nurses who deliver excellent evidence-based practice in a range of care settings and who place the patient at the centre of decision making by promoting dignity, care, and compassion. Over your three years, you will develop the ability to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and monitor care safely and effectively. By taking a person-centred approach to care delivery, you will initially focus on meeting people's essential care needs and, as you progress through your second and third years, you will develop the skills and capabilities to assess, provide and manage the complex care needs of individuals and groups of people.
Students’ clinical and academic skills are developed within a strong and established system of support through personal tutors in the school and clinical mentors in placements. To develop your skills in academic writing, reflection, critical thinking, and decision making, a small group approach to learning is adopted whereby you are supported by your personal tutor. This is complemented by lectures, online activities, individual tutorials, directed study, and skills-based learning in the school’s Clinical Skills Laboratories. Learning in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Keele is enhanced by superb classroom facilities, an excellent Health Library, computer suite, and established relationships with local primary and secondary health care providers.
This is a Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved programme for the Future Nurse standards. Students who successfully complete the programme may apply for NMC nursing registration.
Student nurses are currently eligible to receive an annual grant of at least £5,000 to help cover their living costs. Additional financial grants are also available for eligible students.
