This flexible course is designed for registered nurses working in health, social care and third sector settings to expand on your current skills and training.
up to 5 years
This course has been designed for qualified nurses in health, social care and third sector settings, who wish to top-up their nursing qualification to a BSc degree.
The course acknowledges the diversity of learning needs required by professionals working in health, social care and third sector settings. The key benefit in studying on the programme is its flexibility – it puts you in control by allowing you to choose from a range of modules from across the School of Health & Social Care.
This is not a programme that leads to registration as applicants will already have a nursing qualification.
This is a part-time course and generally lasts one to three years. It can be taken over a longer period, but students must take account of the maximum registration period of five years. You’ll learn by a variety of teaching methods including class-room based delivery and online learning. You’ll graduate with a BSc Nursing Studies
Depending on the academic award gained on your pre-registration programme, you’ll be required to successfully pass a number of modules to allow you to exit with a BSc Nursing Studies (360 credits).
For example, if you have completed a Diploma of Higher Education in Nursing you’ll already have 300 credits and will therefore be required to study the relevant level modules to gain 60 credits to obtain a BSc degree.
Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.
