If you’re working as a healthcare support worker and have always wanted to be an adult nurse but been too worried about money to take the leap, this could be the course for you.
The flexible part-time adult nursing course gives experienced healthcare support workers an opportunity to become a Registered Nurse whilst still working and earning.
If you are working for one of our affiliated health care providers, you can apply to study this part-time adult nursing course at the University of South Wales. Adult nursing at University of South Wales has a great reputation for supporting students from our local communities into a professional career.
This course is normally supported by Welsh Government commissioners in collaboration with Welsh NHS University Health Boards.

Students study the same modules as full-time adult nursing students, but delivery is stretched out over four years rather than the conventional three. The course is delivered over four years.
Students remaining in employment at one of our affiliated health care providers and as part of their work contract study for an average of 23 hours a week as a student nurse.
Studies involve a 50:50 ratio of clinical placements and theory time. Much of this involves eLearning but students do attend occasional mandatory study days, 15 in the first year and then 10 for each successive year. As part of this students will be exposed to simulated clinical learning in our state-of-the-art simulation centre.
