BSc Contemporary Nursing - Individual Modules Only

n light of the current COVID-19 situation, any face to face classroom learning, teaching and assessment may be online through a variety of synchronous and asynchronous video platforms. Please keep up to date with current University guidance relating to Covid-19 here

This suite of modules is designed for all prospective candidates who wish to develop their careers within nursing or in a healthcare setting in the UK. These individual modules also meet the needs of their continuing professional development.

The selection of individual modules provides healthcare professionals with knowledge, understanding, and skills that reflect the contemporary demands and challenges of clinical practice. These modules are suitable for nurses from all fields of nursing and other healthcare professionals who harness the themes of service improvement, leading care, clinical knowledge, skills, and leadership development. Studying these modules will enable students to develop into knowledgeable and adaptive practitioners with a strong capacity for critical thinking that will encompass the need to anticipate and prepare for new roles and responsibilities (Department of Health, 2010).

Individual modules can be chosen to suit practice areas, personal or professional development. The gained credits are accumulated towards a degree level award. 

A range of teaching and learning approaches are used to reflect the practice-focused and work-based orientation of a degree programme. These include interactive lectures, seminars, experiential workshops, simulations, and tutorials. The module delivery aims to be flexible in recognition that students will be working in professional practice at the same time as undertaking the programme. The guided study, online teaching, and learning resources, and use of electronic media will complement classroom-based learning.
