Degree Overview

In the current climate of international mobility, the ability to work effectively with people of varied cultures has become essential, as healthcare delivery may conflict with patients’ cultural beliefs, standards and practices.

Our International Nursing Studies programme is theoretically focused, developed specifically for the international student working towards an advanced practice role. The vision for this Award is to develop nurses/midwives who are able to actively engage in lifelong learning, work effectively with people of varied cultures, beliefs and practices and evaluate evidence-based practice and literature to inform, advance and lead practice and service delivery.

Through the use of face to face teaching, alongside technology enabled learning, the Award will provide a rich learning environment and opportunity for exchange of perspectives and experiences on many levels for international students, not just culturally but also around service developments and the challenges for nursing care delivery.

Furthermore, the Award will provide a diverse and enriching opportunity for students, as part of a nursing/midwifery community of practitioners, to examine barriers to health care. By advancing and facilitating levels of strategic thinking, debate, criticality and analysis, the Award will impact on students’ area of practice, professional role and provide the necessary knowledge to underpin developments in nursing/midwifery.
