Hi Jake73 - We offer adult nursing a 3 year course in Nursing Studies / Registered Nurse which would be based at our Coach Lane Campus. This course involves looking at knowledge and skills of nursing care, nursing in later life and improving nursing (http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/?view=CourseDetail&code=UUFNUA1) for this course you need 5 GCSE's A*-C including English Language, Maths and a physical science subject and 280 UCAS points, or Distinction Merit, Merit at BTEC.

We also offer Nursing studies which are child centred (http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/?view=CourseDetail&code=UUFNUC1) again this is a 3 year course. In this module you'll look at skills involved in child nursing, improving and leading nursing as well as aspects of critical care and young people healthcare challenges.  This course has the same grade requirements as the adult nursng course.
