Find out more information about Nursing

Nursing students gain knowledge in many disciplines closely related to medicine and discover a diverse approach towards the field. They specialise either in hospital or private practice and focus on families, individuals and communities. The academic schedule contains health and public health sciences, theory and techniques for treatments, as well as procedures and rules of best practices. However, theory and research have a high importance in the programme.

Students learn nursing in medical graduate schools, which usually collaborate with hospitals and other health institutions. Nursing degrees lead to a profession that involves the art and science of providing specific services to humankind and establishing long-lasting standards of practice.

During a Master’s degree in nursing, student have the option to specialize in paediatrics, neonatal nursing, women’s or mental health, communities, adult-gerontology or in the family-related field. These sub-disciplines help the student to decide whether to work in a hospital or for private practice. Some of the fields with high career potential in nursing are related to adults, children, mental health, communities, public health, practice education and the academic environment.

Short Course Accessible online learning: supporting disabled students

This online module is concerned with improving access to learning for disabled students. There are increasing expectations in many countries that disabled students should be able to participate fully in post-16 education. This means that people responsible for provision in academic and support roles need to be aware of the impact of this on how modules are designed and delivered online. The module looks at the experiences of disabled students, the technical aspects of accessibility, and current debates and discussions about disability and accessibility in educational contexts. This module benefited from JISC TechDis expertise and materials in its production.
