Course Overview

Adult Nursing at Keele develops adult nurses who deliver excellent evidence-based practice in a range of care settings and who place the patient at the centre of decision making by promoting dignity, care, and compassion. Over your three years, you will develop the ability to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and monitor care safely and effectively. By taking a person-centred approach to care delivery, you will initially focus on meeting people's essential care needs and, as you progress through your second and third years, you will develop the skills and capabilities to assess, provide and manage the complex care needs of individuals and groups of people.

Students’ clinical and academic skills are developed within a strong and established system of support through personal tutors in the school and clinical mentors in placements. To develop your skills in academic writing, reflection, critical thinking, and decision making, a small group approach to learning is adopted whereby you are supported by your personal tutor. This is complemented by lectures, online activities, individual tutorials, directed study, and skills-based learning in the school’s Clinical Skills Laboratories. Learning in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Keele is enhanced by superb classroom facilities, an excellent Health Library, computer suite, and established relationships with local primary and secondary health care providers.

What will this mean for my future?

You will experience a range of hospital and community placements in which you’ll develop the requisite skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed for contemporary adult nursing practice.

Course structure

Our degree courses are organised into modules. Each module is usually a self-contained unit of study and each is usually assessed separately with the award of credits on the basis of 1 credit = 10 hours of student effort.  An outline of the structure of the programme is provided in the tables below.

There are three types of module delivered as part of this programme. They are:

  • Compulsory modules – a module that you are required to study on this course;
  • Optional modules – these allow you some limited choice of what to study from a list of modules;
  • Elective modules – a free choice of modules that count towards the overall credit requirement but not the number of subject-related credits.
