Our innovative new nursing degree provides you with the experience and opportunities to become a graduate nurse of the future. Recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, this course offers a unique pathway that will see you focus on a different aspect of nursing each year, giving you the confidence to lead and manage yourself as a practitioner (first year), the care you deliver (second year) and the service that you work in (third year).

Nursing is an exciting and rewarding profession which requires you to take care of yourself to enable you to care for others – we will support you to consider and maintain your own personal wellbeing and resilience within a ‘Culture of Care’ for both you, and people in your care.
In conjunction with our partners** we will help you develop the skills and adaptability you need to deliver high quality patient care in a range of settings, while also promoting the NHS values and vision ensuring everyone has greater control of their health and wellbeing.
**This course is developed in partnership with Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Gloucestershire Care Services, 2Gether NHS Foundation Trust, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Healthwatch.
You will work in supportive teams with practice and academic experts, mentors and personal tutors. Following an introductory block, your course will be split so half of the time you’ll be studying the theory, while the other half will see you putting that theory into practice with regular placements in professional healthcare settings, allowing you to work with patients, their carers and care providers.
Take a look at the course map for a breakdown of modules that you'll study to complete the course. Some modules are compulsory, but in some cases you can also choose modules which interest you from outside your core area of study.
