When you graduate, you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a nurse. You will also graduate with a clear career plan, which you will have had help to develop during your undergraduate degree. This career plan will be bespoke to your unique skill set and career aspirations.

After you have successfully completed the course and demonstrated through learning (in practice and at the University) that you display the NHS values and behaviours, we anticipate that you will commence employment within the NHS at Band 5. It is also anticipated that, with support from your preceptors in practice, you will utilise your leadership education and skills to fast-track into key NHS leadership roles.

At the point of registration you will have the ability to practise autonomously, and be able to progress to specialist nursing roles using your dual qualification to progress your nursing career in either clinical practice, academia, healthcare management or research.
