Adult nursing is a rewarding and challenging career where you have a real chance to make a difference to people's lives. The completion of this course will lead to registration as an adult nurse.
Adult nurses make up the largest part of the NHS workforce with over 176,000 working in just acute settings. In the future, more adult nursing jobs will be based in the community rather than hospitals as more care is delivered outside of acute settings, including hospital wards, outpatient units or specialist departments, the community or nursing homes and the prison service.
Adult nurses are a key part of the multidisciplinary teams that look after patients. You will be at the centre of teams that can include physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, radiographers and healthcare assistants. You'll also work closely with patients' families and carers.
Start your nursing career at the University of Sunderland with one of our partner Trusts and develop life-long nursing skills in a collaborative and supportive environment. Many career opportunities are available post-qualification and with additional qualifications, nurses have the potential of earning £40K plus.
