Content

The first part of the programme offers foundation courses and introductory community and hospital nursing experience.

As in all years of the degree, the study of Nursing itself has the greatest weighting. It includes a review of the historical context of Nursing and explores basic concepts fundamental to nursing practice. Health is studied from an individual and community perspective, involving Community Nursing Practice, during which you will complete a community study, the emphasis of which is on the health needs of a local community. The basic sciences which underpin Nursing (such as Anatomy and Physiology) are introduced along with the exploration of psychological and sociological aspects of care and a course in Moral Philosophy and Ethics.

Aspects of Human Biomolecular Science, Pathology, Microbiology, Clinical Physics, Human Nutrition and Clinical Pharmacology are integrated as appropriate with Nursing, which is the principal theme. Health Promotion and Health Education and a range of other subjects related to nursing in the community are studied, with clinical nursing practice provided in both hospital and community contexts.
