Nursing (Adult) - Pre-Registration
PGCert or MSc
Our master’s degree allows you to undertake an Adult Nursing course which leads to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The PG Cert second registration course is for qualified nurses (child, mental health or learning disability) wanting to gain registration as a registered adult nurse, whilst also receiving an academic award.
As an adult nurse you need to be able to demonstrate competence in the fundamentals of nursing care across the patient's lifespan. We recognise that the context of healthcare delivery is changing, so it is essential that you are able to work:
- and collaboratively.
We offer a wide variety of practice experiences throughout Oxfordshire in:
- the community
- private and voluntary sector settings.
We involve service users, carers and expert lecturers from clinical practice to strengthen our teaching. And our curriculum will give you the knowledge, skills and attitudes you need as a graduating Adult Nurse. So that you can influence improvements in practice.
