The following modules on these BSc Nursing degrees can be delivered in Welsh. 

 

Year 1

 

SHN129W Introduction to Professional Practice (Adults)

The module philosophy is the belief that continuous development is the basis for professional practice. Throughout their professional lives, qualified nurses need to take responsibility for their education and personal development. To achieve this, they need to be able to identify their learning and developmental needs, developing appropriate strategies to achieve them. Aspects of personal and professional development cannot be separated. This module is based on the contents of other modules within the year, and also practical experiences, to introduce the concept of professional practice. The students will present their development through patchwork text and portfolio.
