      Course content

      What will you study on the BSc Professional Studies (Nursing)?

      This course will cover the various facets of nurses roles including:

      • Mentorship and learning
      • Teaching principles and practice
      • Professional ethics
      • Health promotion

      What will you gain?

      As well as developing your critical thinking and decision making, you will also gain the ability to reflect and analyse your own performance. You will have research analysis and evaluating skills and will focus on the facilitation of learning and communication to a range of audiences including students, peers and clients.

      • Modules
        • Transcultural Nursing (30 credits) - Compulsory

          Through this module you will gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes which will enable you to provide culturally appropriate nursing care to patients, clients and service users, which is compassionate, empowering, and respectful of their human rights.

        • Professional Ethics for Health and Social Care (15 credits) - Compulsory

          This module aims to introduce a range of issues and equip you with the relevant theoretical grounding and key analytical skills in order to analyse and inform clinical decision making. All forms of health and social care involve some degree of value judgement, and there have always been ethical dilemmas associated with the delivery of care. The development of technology and the advance of science have only increased these dilemmas. New ideas are challenging established practices and long-cherished beliefs are being scrutinised and questioned.

        • Wider Context of Health Promotion (30 credits) - Compulsory

          This module seeks to provide the skills and knowledge required to explore and examine your role within health promotion at individual, local, national and international levels. You will explore the concepts of health and of health promotion including your own philosophies. There will be a focus on differing agendas (including those on screening), inequalities of health, social capital, strategies for change, resourcing and health improvement plans.

        • Mentorship Preparation (15 credits) - Compulsory

          This module is aimed at nurses, midwives and other healthcare professionals qualified for a minimum of one year. You will develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the role of the mentor and be able to apply this in clinical practice.

        • Dissertation (30 credits) - Compulsory

          This module aims to synthesise learning from your undergraduate degree programme providing an opportunity for you to study independently and investigate a topic in depth. It fosters academic curiosity, an inquiry based approach and the employment and application of research skills, thus facilitating the development of a higher level of theorising.
