About this course

This BSc Adult Nursing degree will give you the knowledge and skills you need to provide evidence-led and compassionate nursing care to adults. Your learning at Southampton, a global leader for nursing, will be supported by world-class educators and researchers.

We are no longer taking applications for September 2021 entry.

You will 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 benefit from simulated practice and clinical skills teaching. You will also learn with and from students of other health professions.

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

To prepare you for your future role, this degree 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 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 as a registered nurse (adult).

Support for students with a disability/health condition

We are fully committed to supporting students with disabilities who wish to join programmes of study which require the acquisition and practise of professional competencies.

We offer students personal, informal advice by telephone, email or face to face, and we are happy to discuss your specific needs prior to you applying. This could include how your specific needs may impact on your ability to meet the clinical competencies. This will not affect your application in any way, but may help you to select the right programme for you.

Please contact the admissions team for further details.
