We take a local community approach giving you experience in hospitals, communities and primary care services within a single locality setting provided by our healthcare partners. Your placement experiences will enable you to form an integrated understanding and appreciation of local health needs and services, as well as gaining insight into future career opportunities in each practice setting.
The course is half practice and half theory. We'll teach you how to apply what you learn to a practical setting and improve your skills in leadership and problem solving.
You will study six units across your course (two per year): Foundations in Nursing/Health 1 and 2; Patients with Acute and Short Term Needs; Patients with Long Term and Complex Needs; Transitions to Practice; Developing Autonomy and Transitions to Practice: Managing and Organising Care.
You will develop clinical skills throughout your course at our purpose built simulation facility where you will learn from mock clinical ward areas, resuscitation suites, simulated theatres, simulated homes, teaching rooms and a fully equipped filming studio.
Our local health community partners are Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster, Chesterfield and Sheffield. There will be an opportunity for you to contact and visit each local community before making a decision about where you would like to spend your placement.
You will be able to express a preference during the application process which we will attempt to accommodate. However this cannot be guaranteed.
You will work closely with your course tutors, personal tutors and clinical partners, who will provide help, advice and support throughout you course.
