Take the next step in your nursing career with our BSc Nursing Studies, designed for nurses with certificates and diplomas to boost their qualifications to bachelor's level. Already an essential requirement for initial practice, a bachelor's degree is becoming increasingly crucial for nurses seeking to progress in their vocation.

Why study BSc Nursing Studies at Middlesex University?

In 2010, the Nursing and Midwifery Council amended its required minimum outcome for pre-registration nurse education to degree-level study. As a result, employers will increasingly require nurses from band five upwards to hold a degree qualification as a minimum.

With its fixed modular structure, a BSc Nursing Studies from Middlesex University will enable you to top up your qualification and acquire vital new skills for taking your career further. At the end of the course, you will be able to critically analyse models of care and practice in nursing, evaluate the quality of evidence required to engage in effective nursing practice and to underpin practice development and improvement, and critically evaluate core ethical principles underpinning the vocation.
