Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

This course will also include a Health Foundation Year. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals.

Upon completion of the foundation year, you will begin the Adult Nursing programme. Adult Nursing at Keele develops adult nurses who deliver excellent evidence-based practice in a range of care settings and who place the patient at the centre of decision making by promoting dignity, care,
and compassion. Over your three years, you will develop the ability to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and monitor care safely and effectively. By taking a person-centred approach to care delivery, you will initially focus on meeting people’s essential care needs and, as the progress through your second and third years, you will develop the skills and capabilities to assess, provide, and manage the complex care needs of individuals and groups of people.

Students’ clinical and academic skills are developed within a strong and established system of support through personal tutors in the school and clinical mentors in placements. To develop your skills in academic writing, reflection, critical thinking, and decision making, a small group approach to learning is adopted whereby you are supported by your personal tutor. This is complemented by lectures, online activities, individual tutorials, directed study, and skills-based learning in the
school’s Clinical Skills Laboratories. Learning in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Keele is enhanced by superb classroom facilities, an excellent Health Library, computer suite, and established relationships with local primary and secondary health care providers.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. You will experience a range of hospital and community placements in which you’ll develop the requisite skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed for contemporary adult nursing practice.
