                           Programme of study

This programme meets the professional outcomes that are identified by the
Nursing and Midwifery Council as essential pre-requisites for registration
as a nurse.

The Programme commences each September with an additional intake for
adult nursing every March.

This is a three-year, full-time carefully integrated modular programme of
theoretical and clinical study to provide structured development of
professional skills.

All modules are compulsory and fifty percent of the programme is delivered
in a range of clinical practice settings.
Selection criteria.

Academic qualifications
Strong academic profile i.e. how qualifications achieved.
GCSEs grade C or above including - English/Welsh language, Science & Maths.
240 UCAS points (Such as ‘A’ levels, BTEC, ACCESS, Welsh Baccalaureate)

Selection criteria.

Offers have same conditions attached as with offers of employment for
registered nurses
         - Achieving academic criteria
         - Satisfactory references (2 and follow NMC good character guidelines)
         - Satisfactory OHD (independent of interview)
         - Satisfactory CRB/ISA (independent of interview)

Fitness for practice assessment panel
Newly established to meet the growing demand to judge whether candidates with
specific needs can enter the programme if ‘reasonable’ adjustment is made to
accommodate them.
Professional standards.

Students are expected to behave in a manner becoming of a professional and as such are told that the
way in which they conduct themselves in public, in clinical practice and at university will potentially
determine their success on the programme.

Students progress is not only determined by academic ability but will be governed by professional and
organisation expectations such as;

           - The NMC code and guidance to students.
           - Rules and regulations of the School of Health Science and Swansea University.
           - Policies and procedures of healthcare providers (NHS and private).
           - The legal system.

The NMC require a declaration of good character to be made by the university before the student can
enter onto the register. This requirement is given equal consideration as that of academic success when
determining the fitness of the student to enter the profession.

    Common Foundation Programme.
The first year of your three-year course is taken up by the common foundation year. During this
period students will receive a general introduction to core skills and knowledge which are equally
applicable to every branch of nursing. Having passed this stage students will progress to study
one of our three specialties or branch programmes – adult, child or mental health nursing. Please
note that students will choose which branch of nursing they would like to study prior to starting the
programme.
