CU Scarborough are bringing nursing degrees to the Yorkshire coast.
There is currently a shortage of qualified nurses and healthcare workers along the Yorkshire coast. CU Scarborough, working in collaboration with healthcare partners which include the local NHS trust and GP practices, is aiming to fill the void by providing an Adult Nursing degree in the region.
The BSc Adult Nursing degree places equal value on practice and theory. You will study a wide range of subjects including anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, psychology, sociology and research methods.
You will study and develop effective skills in communication, compassion, relationship building with patients, evidence informed practice and public health and policy.
Nursing is a very rewarding profession with excellent career and development prospects. Our degree course can enable you to meet diverse professional challenges and will develop you into an adaptable, flexible, reflective and compassionate practitioner.
The course is full-time, with one half practice based, which involves shift work on placement. The other half is spent on campus in Scarborough.
