Student View

Watch student Clare Manley talk about what it’s like to study on this course.

How you learn

Watch course leader Gary Souter talk about this course.

Your learning will be facilitated through modules that focus on the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) competencies and essential skills. Practice learning is an essential component of pre-registration nursing curriculum and takes up 50% of your learning.

Nurses are an integral part of a multidisciplinary team and you study partly alongside students from other health disciplines, such as social workers, radiographers and physiotherapists. This allows you to develop team-working skills and understand the contribution of different professionals to patient care.

You learn through

  • workshops
  • seminars
  • practice-based learning
  • simulation
  • role play and key skills practice

Work placements

Practice-based learning is central to your development and you spend 50% of each year on placement within either a hospital, community or independent sector setting across the Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Bassetlaw and Barnsley region. You will undertake a range of exciting placements in stimulating environments, helping you build your skills, confidence, flexibility, adaptability and resilience, which are essential to a registered nurse providing care in transforming services.

During your placements you will be provided with a mentor to help you develop your skills and competency. Your academic study supports your learning on placement and your placement experience allows you to develop your thinking about the application of evidence to practice. This will help you to develop both personally and professionally, and you will become a knowledgeable problem solver and critical thinker.

This course prepares you for a career in
