Welcome to MSc Nursing (Pre-registration - Adult)
How You Study
Placements are a compulsory element to the programme and will be undertaken with a range of partner sites and departments across the county of Lincolnshire. Travel to placements will be expected and students will be responsible for all related travel costs.
"This course has made me realise the diversity of roles I could do and given me insight into the intricacies of the healthcare system. The clinical skills lectures and theory lectures have provided me with the skills and knowledge to feel confident going into placement. Being an adult nurse opens up so many doors, but being an adult nurse with a Master's degree opens up even more so I am looking forward to qualifying and seeing where this path takes me."Abbie Carter, MSc Nursing (Pre-registration - Adult) student
The University has invested £19 million in the Sarah Swift Building, a dedicated facility for the School of Health and Social Care and the School of Psychology. The course is delivered in well-equipped clinical suites for simulated practice, with separate teaching and observation areas.
