  • SHG107 An Introduction to Healthcare Practice (SDP)

    This module provides an introduction to core nursing concepts, such as law, ethics, research, numeracy and health promotion.

  • SHN128 Developing Nursing Knowledge (Adult)

    This module aims to equip student nurses to work with individuals, service users, carers and the multi disciplinary team when planning and providing appropriate evidence based care. The concepts of Clinical Governance and clinical assessment and decision making will be explored. The module will build on previous knowledge to facilitate the development of theoretical and practical knowledge so that the individual can recognise and act when there is a risk to the client/service user of physical or mental health problems across the lifespan.

  • SHN129 Introduction to Professional Practice (Adult)

    The philosophy of the module is the belief that continued development underpins professional practice. Throughout their professional lives, qualified nurses need to take responsibility for their own learning and development. In order to achieve this, they need to be able to recognise their learning and developmental needs, developing appropriate strategies to fulfil them. Development encompasses both personal and professional aspects as one cannot be separated from the other. This module draws on the content of other modules within the year and experiences in practice to introduce the concept of professional practice. The students will demonstrate this learning through the medium of a portfolio and by producing a patchwork text.
