|Field of Study:||Nursing/Registered Nurse (RN, ASN, BSN, MSN)
|Description:||Northumbria’s pre-registration nursing programmes are the first in the country to be accredited by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), in addition to being approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). On our Nursing Studies course you will spend half of your time studying at university and half on placement, receiving personalised support from a guidance tutor. As a result you will graduate as a skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate nurse, able to respond appropriately to healthcare needs and accept professional responsibility.
This Nursing Studies degree incorporates the minimum hours (4,600 hours of theory and practice) prescribed by the NMC, so that when you graduate you can register as a nurse (Part 1). This will allow you to apply for posts as a registered nurse in the UK or the EU, in a variety of roles in hospitals, community settings, public health and care homes. All these factors mean that 96% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of graduating, earning an average starting salary of £21,000 (Unistats 2012).
