Nursing with Registered Nurse (Adult)
Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers you can choose. As a nurse specialising in adult care, you will deliver care to people who need immediate help and support in hospitals or community settings. We are no longer accepting applications for Preston or Burnley Campus through Clearing. We still have available places at our Westlakes Campus.
Why study with us
- The curriculum addresses National Benchmarks and is split between 50% theoretical study - including time spent in small groups with other students who’ve chosen the same field of nursing as you - and 50% practical clinical experience.
- We are one of the first educational providers in the North West to ensure that you are adequately supported within your clinical experiences by allocating link lecturers to all of the placement areas you will access.
- The University has been awarded the highest independent quality assessment by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education for the design, content and management of our curricula, student achievement and standards of teaching.

Nicky tells us about our Nursing courses
What you’ll do
- For clinical placement experiences, you’ll be allocated to one of several NHS Trusts within the Central Lancashire region as your base and from there, gain experience in a range of placement areas.
- You’ll undertake practical work experience placements, as well as spend time developing practical skills in our clinical skills labs using clinical patient simulators (manikins) and simulation model trainers.
- Opportunities exist for an international experience by taking advantage of the University's extensive links in Europe and overseas. You can also take advantage of other voluntary international experiences in America, Oman, Tanzania and Finland.
Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
