We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
Work placements are designed to prepare students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing clinical environment, whether this be a hospital, GP surgery, or community healthcare setting.
In the second year students can undertake a four-week elective placement. This may be in the UK or abroad and can be organised by the University or by the student.
Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs relating to placements.
Placement expenses for travel, accommodation may be reimbursed by NHS Bursaries where, for example, the requirement exceeds that of attending university; requires transport out of normal operating hours; or requires additional accommodation to that of the usual term time location. These expenses may need to be covered initially by the student before any applicable reimbursement is received.
Graduates have progressed to nursing roles in a range of diverse health and social care settings, from acute nursing to community care, or in education, research, and health management. Some have gone on to further study at postgraduate level.
This course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), enabling students to register as a qualified nurse upon graduation. Students are required to complete competencies for nursing in practice as part of the NMC Future Nursing: Standards framework for Nursing and Midwifery (2018).

Health and social care practitioners can make a profound difference to the lives of vulnerable people, working in a variety of settings.
Nursing practice in the 21st Century is becoming increasingly demanding. Nurses play a key role, through their work in primary and secondary care.
Nurses focus on restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families, and profiling healthcare needs of communities.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
