The Nursing and Midwifery Council introduced new national educational standards for nursing in 2018. As such, we intend to commence a new curriculum in September 2020, based on these standards. This is subject to the ratification of the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This page will be updated as the new curriculum is confirmed.
Watch: Donna Edwards, Senior Lecturer of Nursing with Registration talks about the benefits of studying Nursing with Registration at DMU.
Adult nurses play crucial roles in healthcare settings by restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families, and responding to the varied healthcare needs of individual patients or communities.
Career opportunities are varied, with registered nurses working for the NHS or the private sector, for medical charities, voluntary organisations, in community care or the education sector. As well as prospects in the UK, global career opportunities are a very real option (subject to country specific criteria).
During this course – thanks to strong links with service providers across the region – we are able to offer a range of placement opportunities embedded within all three years of the course.
In addition, you will study a range of topics including; Influences on Wellbeing, Foundations of Field of Practice, Patient Journey – Primary care, Acute care and Community Care, Managing complexities in Nursing practice and Consolidating Clinical Care and Professional Practice.
From September 2020, all nursing degree students will receive at least £5,000 a year with up to £3,000 additional funding available. Further information, including eligible health professional courses, can be found here.
