Focusing on practice placements

Our nursing students gain real world experience with fifty per cent of their course spent on placement. You will participate in the best and most varied hands-on experience within a host locality.

In addition to this, you’ll practice your clinical and communication skills in the safe, supervised setting of our Clinical Skills Resource Centre (CSRC) which features specially designed replicas of hospital wards and emergency rooms, with patient-simulators. 

Timothy Murray - BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult) graduate

"The BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing course in Plymouth really prepares you for life as a qualified nurse. The placements helped me develop the skills and appreciation for the multi-faceted role of a registered nurse in a range of environments… I loved the placement element of the course because it had lots of patient contact and hands on care.”
