About this course

Learn how to become an adult and mental health nurse on this MNurs Nursing degree. You'll learn the skills needed to provide compassionate, evidence-based care as you prepare for a career that combines skills from both areas.

Southampton is a global leader for nursing, and your learning will be supported by world-class educators and researchers. 

On this master's course, you'll study:

  • the science that underpins nursing

  • the evidence base behind the nurse's role

  • how nurses promote health and help people maintain health and well-being

You'll develop practice skills through a range of nursing placements, and your learning will be further supported through simulated practice and clinical skills teaching.

Practice placements will normally be undertaken in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight in a mixture of hospital and community settings across 6 trusts.

You will also learn with and from students of other health professions in both theory and practice.   

To prepare you for your future role, the programme will help you to:

  • develop skills in assessment, decision-making and managing complexity across a range of healthcare environments

  • understand the nature of health needs within a global context

  • become confident in embracing the technology and innovation that will be needed to meet people's future health needs 

  • prepare for a future nursing leadership role in clinical or academic settings

When you have successfully completed the programme, you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a registered nurse (adult) and a registered nurse (mental health).
