Nursing practice in the 21st Century is becoming increasingly demanding. Nurses play a key role, through their work in primary and secondary care settings, restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families and profiling healthcare needs of communities.
The University of Lincoln recognises the challenges to contemporary and future healthcare and nursing practice. This degree takes its lead from the World Health Organisation's vision of public health-focused nursing of the future.
The BSc (Hons) Nursing with Registered Nurse (Adult) degree is underpinned by the six fundamental values outlined in the the Chief Nursing Officers Vision and Strategy, Compassion In Practice.
Theoretical and clinical elements of the programme build on the philosophy stated in the NHS Constitution and is centred on the NHS Values: Working Together for Patients; Respect and Dignity; Commitment to the Quality of Care; Compassion, Improving Lives; Everyone Counts.
In addition to the required medical knowledge and interpersonal skills traditionally associated with nursing, students have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of how to profile the health needs of any community, anywhere in the world. This aims to ensure that graduates are exceptionally well placed to meet the nursing needs of a changing world.
