Why you should study this course

If you are a naturally caring and compassionate individual, adult nursing can be considered one of most rewarding professions you could choose to work in, as well as being challenging, varied and with excellent career prospects.

  • Nurses work with a people in a wide variety of roles and settings. These include monitoring seriously ill and deteriorating patients, caring for those with long- term conditions, caring for people who are dying at home and in hospital, supporting family members, and promoting the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. The work can be intense but is rewarding.  This course has been designed to develop professionals who are not only highly skilled but also caring, compassionate, effective communicators and have the capacity to be emotionally resilient. These principles are at the forefront of our teaching which aims to encompass theory, practice, and immersive learning.
  • Coventry’s ‘learning through exploration’ approach aims to provide an exceptional learning environment. You will have the opportunity to be taught using a range of scenarios using the latest technology to role play various evolving clinical situations. We believe this approach contextualises your learning and can help you to develop the skills you will need in practice.
  • You will be encouraged to immerse yourself in learning about the needs of populations, individuals, related health, and nursing services with an emphasis on using research to enhance and improve services.
  • We will encourage you to develop an in-depth understanding of the organisation and culture of modern healthcare systems, aiming to equip you with the confidence to be able to take a stronger role in the leadership and management of resources in delivering treatment and healthcare options to patients.
  • Throughout your studies, in groups and individually, you will be asked to undertake profession-specific health and social care related projects and case studies. These may, for example, include an appraisal of the role of the nurse in ethical and legal decision-making or complex care planning and delivery via the multi-disciplinary team. You will also have the opportunity to participate in activities such as group presentations demonstrating your understanding of research underpinning patient care.
  • This course aims to prepare you for the dynamic and fast-changing health and social care system, which should help you to develop into an adaptable, flexible, reflective, competent, and compassionate practitioner. From the outset, you will gain hands-on experience under supervision from qualified practice supervisors and assessors, spending around 50% of your time on clinical practice placements (sourced for you by the university) in a range of healthcare environments within the NHS in hospitals and community placements, at private hospitals and independent care providers*. We have well-established links with local partner NHS trusts and other healthcare providers, such as private hospitals, hospices, and community settings.
  • While the course has a clear focus on nursing adults, a key benefit of our curriculum is the notion of collaboration across all areas of health and social care. Your studies can be complemented with significant insights into mental health, learning disability and children and young people’s nursing. Some modules are also studied in conjunction with other health and social care professionals; looking at specific issues and challenges they face to broaden your knowledge and expertise.
  • You may have the opportunity to go on field trips within the UK which have previously included visits to the first operating theatre in London and museums capturing the history of nursing and healthcare*.

What you'll study

Nurses routinely have the most frequent and intense contact with patients and must be competent in recognising changes in patient condition so that appropriate action can be taken. This course has been designed to produce professionals who are not only highly skilled but also caring, compassionate, effective communicators and have the capacity to be emotionally resilient. These principles are at the forefront of our teaching which aims to encompass theory, practice and immersive learning

In modern health settings nursing students increasingly work towards becoming autonomous practitioners, taking a leadership role in decisions regarding patient care within multi-professional settings.  Our course is designed to build those skills throughout your studies.

The course has been developed as a spiral curriculum - where each year builds on knowledge gained in the previous one – and has patient assessment at its core. The faculty recognises that inter-professional education and practice can maximise the strengths and skills of health and social care practitioners enabling you to deliver high quality care to service users, their families and carers. Therefore, this course will be enhanced by inter-professional learning, which will enable you to learn with, from, and about other health and social care students to improve patient care.

Equal value is placed on practice and theory. You will undertake 800 hours of placement each year and study a wide range of subjects, including anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, psychology, sociology and research methods. You will be encouraged to immerse yourself in learning about the needs of populations, individuals, related health and nursing services with an emphasis on using research to enhance and improve services.

This provides the foundations for nursing practice and university study. After successfully completing year one, you will have developed an understanding of the scientific principles of nursing and the importance of evidence-based practice and putting patients and their families at the centre of care. Practical skills should ensure you are able to perform fundamental care to vulnerable adults whilst on placement.

How you'll learn

This Adult Nursing BSc (Hons) course uses a wide variety of stimulating approaches to teaching and learning to suit individual learning styles. This may include a series of interactive lectures, seminars, online learning, skills lab activities and practical placements. Successful completion of all modules are mandatory to enable you to exit the programme with the knowledge, values and skills to be able to work within integrated care settings and enhance the delivery of care for service users, their families and carers.

Gaining experience using simulation across a range of care settings is aimed at building your confidence and knowledge about how to act in these situations. You can practise and develop your clinical and interpersonal skills in a safe but realistic environment. We have also used actors or staff to enhance these experiences in scenarios which include breaking bad news, demonstrating emotional resilience, conflict, aggression, teaching, and child protection conferences.

As 50% of the course is practice-based, this requires 40 hours per week in placements, sourced for you by the university*. During theory modules, teaching is delivered in a variety of different ways and generally includes seminars, group work, clinical skills sessions and scenario-based learning, workshops, online learning, seminars and lectures.


Assessment

This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include coursework, practical placement and formal examinations. This course is predominantly assessed by coursework and practical placement.

The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes.


Job ready

The course is fully accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), providing eligibility for registration as a nurse on successful completion of the course (additional costs may apply).

From the outset, you will gain hands-on experience under supervision from qualified practice supervisors and assessors. You will spend around 50% of your time on clinical practice placements (sourced for you by the university), meaning you are able to put theory into practice in a range of healthcare environments.


International experience opportunities

Throughout the course, we aim to provide key insights into cultural diversity and global issues of significance to public health and all fields of nursing practice. For example, we look at what it means to be culturally competent within healthcare today. Some of this is supported by guest lecturers (subject to availability) or simulation facilitators and others through topical issues covered within the course.

We offer participation in collaborative online international learning projects (COIL) with our international partners where students learn about international differences in healthcare systems.

Students and visiting lecturers from other countries who can provide an input into the course have previously come from areas such as Hong Kong, Japan and Africa. We also participate in some senior staff exchanges, for example, with institutions in India and China, which can provide additional insights for students into international issues.

The live simulation first aid scenario using actors with realistic wounds instead of dummies was an amazing learning experience, it gave us the push that we didn’t know we needed, after the nurturing and supportive teaching we’ve received. Nothing wakes you up quite like ‘the real deal’, and for the first time in a ‘real’ situation, we were in charge and made the decisions, it made us think on our feet as professionals. My adrenalin surged, respirations, heart rate and blood pressure rose which doesn’t happen in a ‘normal’ teaching session. I will certainly remember it as one of the best experiences of my training at university. I absolutely loved it.
