This programme represents a new, two-year route for those who wish to become an Adult nurse but who already possess an undergraduate honours degree.
The programme enables students to undertake study at Masters level whilst providing the theoretical and practice-based learning required to achieve the proficiencies for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and therefore practice as a registered Adult nurse.
The key aim of this programme is to produce first-level registered Adult nurses who are educated at Masters level enabling them to demonstrate leadership and innovation to meet the demands of contemporary healthcare.
Students benefit from the expertise generated through more than 60 years’ experience of providing undergraduate nursing education at the University of Edinburgh. Becoming a student in Nursing Studies means you will be joining an international community of students studying our 4-year Bachelor of Nursing with honours, MSc Advanced Nursing, Masters by Research and PhD programmes.
About the programme
Why study this programme?
Within Nursing Studies we work to make all of our teaching and learning accessible through engagement with the Disability service and reasonable adjustments, and through engagement with the University’s policy on accessibility in the curriculum.
We aim to design programmes that are inclusive, promoting a safe learning environment for students to flourish. Within the School of Health in Social Science, staff have had opportunities through training and through the Programme Directors meetings to engage with the concept of an inclusive curriculum. This is supported by the Dignity and Respect policy and the Equalities Act 2010 which provide a framework for students and staff to understand the requirements and expectations in relation to equality and diversity.
Within the classroom this supports the development of ‘identity safe’ spaces. The development of inclusivity is an ongoing focus within the Teaching and Learning Strategy of the School.
