This combined with learning about physical and human science will prepare you for your first clinical placements which will be held in local NHS Trusts.

Fifty percent of your time over the duration of the course will be in clinical practice under the supervision of registered practitioners, in a range of clinical settings in and out of hospital. A key aspect of our course is patient involvement and patient centred care, and you will have regular contact with our Patient, Carer and Public Involvement (PCPI) members throughout the course, who all have experience and expertise as patients or carers.

As a nurse, you will need to demonstrate compassionate and caring approaches to patients and interprofessional working in the healthcare workforce and the programme provides you with opportunities to learn and work alongside other students and staff from a range of disciplines, as part of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

Fitness to practise
Medical assessments of your mental and physical health and disclosure of criminal convictions apply to all nursing courses and are based on current NMC requirements.

  • A self-declaration form about your conduct.
  • Obtain an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The cost of the DBS check is covered by the University.

Instructions on how you complete these checks will be sent to you once you hold a conditional firm offer with us. These forms are then reviewed alongside your application, and you must meet both the academic and fitness to practise requirements before you will be given an unconditional offer. If you are successful, you will also need to complete an annual declaration form to confirm you are fit and there are no changes to your DBS.

Career ready

Adult nursing is a rewarding and challenging career where you have a real chance to make a difference to people’s lives. The completion of this course will lead to registration with the NMC as a qualified adult nurse.

Career options

Adult nurses are key workers and make up the largest part of the NHS workforce with over 176,000 working in just acute settings. In the future, more adult nursing jobs will be based in the community rather than hospitals as more care is delivered outside of acute settings, including hospital wards, outpatient units or specialist departments, the community or nursing homes and the prison service.

Adult nurses are a key part of the multidisciplinary teams that look after patients. You will be at the centre of teams that can include physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, radiographers and healthcare assistants. You’ll also work closely with patients’ families and carers.

Start your nursing career at the University of Sunderland with one of our partner Trusts and develop life-long nursing skills in a collaborative and supportive environment.  Many career opportunities are available post-qualification and with additional qualifications, nurses have the potential of earning £40K plus.


At all levels of the course, you will undertake unpaid clinical placements in hospitals and the community. The placements occur in blocks of varying duration:

  • Year 1 – two blocks, each block is nine weeks long (18 weeks in total)
  • Year 2 – three blocks, each block is seven weeks long (21 weeks in total)
  • Year 3 – two blocks, which are 9 and 16 weeks long (25 weeks in total)

Your first placement will take place in the first term, after ten weeks of teaching.

You will undertake your placements at one of our partner trusts: South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust, The Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, North Tees and Hartlepool Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

During your placements, you will be assigned Practice Assessors and Practice Supervisors who will directly assess and supervise you as well as acting as a means of support and guidance.

As you may be expected to travel long distances, start your shift in the early hours, or finish your shift late at night, you could be entitled to Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses (TDAE) which allows you to make a retrospective claim for excess travel costs and/or expenses for temporary accommodation near to the location of your placement.
