BSc (Hons) Degree in Nursing

Undergraduate Course

Objectives

The programme includes a wide range of topics which reflect the contemporary knowledge base of professional practice.

This course is designed to introduce nursing students to the ethos, culture, practice and evidence base of the discipline of nursing. Students will also gain an understanding of the needs of people that are in the care of nurses, a sense of “how nursing works” and the personal/professional qualities that are associated with effective nursing practice.

The overall aim of the course is to stimulate and enable students to become compassionate, caring, competent and critically aware nurse practitioners.

Practice Placement

This course includes practice experience that is designed to introduce students to the practical aspects of the nursing profession. Practice placement aims to allow students to focus on the practical role and functions of nursing. This will allow the student to see how the nursing function works within the care system of Cyprus and the European Union. Equally it will allow the student to experience the multidisciplinary nature of hearth care. The opportunity will therefore be created which will allow the student to develop self-awareness and self-insight particularly in relation to the ethical and more underpinning of the profession.

Practice placement will allow for experience to be gained in a guided setting under the supervision of qualified nursing staff in hospitals, clinics and health care centres. This will help students integrate theory to practice thus enhancing the transfer of learning. Where feasible, the student will be able to practice his/her nursing skills acquired in a laboratory setting.
