There are few careers that are as rewarding, or that allow you to work with such a variety of people. Our Nursing courses will give you the specialist skills, education and training to prepare you for the workplace.
You will learn in our impressive health facilities. Our Clinical Simulation Centre replicates clinical environments for education and training. These include two, four-bedded bays to simulate a hospital setting, dedicated paediatric and maternity facilities, including a special care baby unit, an intensive care environment and an emergency department with a fully equipped ambulance simulator.
The Centre is used for healthcare education and training, dealing with everything from essential clinical skills to complex, multidisciplinary clinical scenarios. You’ll use the same equipment you will find in healthcare settings, and work on patient simulators that mimic the body’s reactions to illness, care and treatment.
The University prides itself on the support it gives to students on its nursing degrees, both practically and emotionally. Every student has a personal tutor and a module supervisor. During clinical placements students are fully supported by a qualified nurse who acts as a ‘mentor’.
Student nurses and midwives will still be able to apply for the NHS bursary in Wales if they are starting their studies in September 2019. Incoming students must commit to working in Wales for up to two years after gaining their qualification to be eligible for a full NHS bursary.
We also offer a series of short courses for qualified nurses.
