Adult nursing focuses upon the health care needs of people from 16 years onwards. The diverse and interesting range of experiences encompasses caring for clients with acute care needs in a hospital setting to longer term needs of a client within the community setting.
Our programme is firmly based on the philosophy of family-centred care, including support and education to the family of the child, to enable them to be as involved in their child's care as they feel is appropriate. Students will be equipped to care for children and their families in a variety of settings including acute, primary care and community settings.
