About this course

Study the MNurs Adult and Child Nursing course at Southampton University - a global leader for nursing. We'll help you develop the skills to provide compassionate, evidence-based care. Graduate from this course with the chance to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a Registered Nurse (Adult) and as a Registered Nurse (Child).

Your learning will be supported by world-class educators and researchers.

You'll study:

  • the science that underpins nursing

  • the evidence base behind the nurse's role

  • how nurses promote health and help people to 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'll 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
