This three-year programme is a fantastic and unique opportunity for students to develop a career in one of the most rewarding and diverse areas of nursing practice, with an emphasis on community and social care nursing alongside acute clinical placements.

The programme, which is split equally between academic study and practice, will allow candidates to contribute to the provision of patient care at home, getting to know patients and their families and having the privilege of nursing a patient in their own environment as well as in an acute environment.

In addition to the required three days per week of allocated clinical practice throughout the programme that takes place in Bristol and the surrounding area, regular clinical skills will be taught on our Oxstalls campus in Gloucester alongside academic support from UoG, meaning it’s ideal for students who like to take a hands-on approach to learning. The flexibility around some of the online delivery of academic content of this course also makes it the perfect option for an individual who wants to learn on the job and may prefer the option to work around existing commitments.

Placements are located throughout Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, including Weston-super-Mare.

Course delivery

The course is delivered in partnership with the ‘Healthier Together’ Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Integrated Care System which is a partnership of ten local health and care organisations:

A typical week

The online classes are taught by UoG on our ‘virtual campus’ and usually take place one day per week, so you don’t need to attend the university in person as often as you would on our on-campus degree. You’ll also need to spend roughly one day per week on independent study.

The rest of the week on the course involves face-to-face learning through skills practice, either at an NHS centre within your pod area or at our Oxstalls campus in Gloucester, and placements (usually three per week) within local NHS services in Bristol.

These placements vary over the course of your degree to meet the NMC requirements and include fields such as general and specialist medicine and surgery, care across the lifespan, home nursing and mental health.
