If you already hold a Diploma or Advanced Diploma in Nursing Studies, top it up to a full honours degree with this online course, and fit study easily around your career, personal or family commitments.

There is also an access route at Level 5 Diploma level if you do not meet the academic entry requirements. Depending on your qualifications, you will need to successfully complete one or both of the Counselling Skills and Counselling in Context modules for entry onto the BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies (top up) degree programme.

Our tutors have many years’ experience in nursing and they understand the pressures of balancing study around work and family commitments. We like to know that our students feel challenged yet confident about their online study and in our latest feedback survey, 91%* of our online Nursing studies BSc top up students agree that, they learnt something that changed the way they understood an issue or concept (*UDOL feedback survey 2015).

Our online BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies (top up) degree has been specifically designed by experienced professionals, with internationally renowned contributors such as:

  • Dr Chris Gillespie MPhil., PhD., CPsychol., AFBPsS,  a Consultant Psychologist at the Royal Derby Hospital, Derby, UK

  • Dr Ian Turner whose research interests are molecular biology and forensic document analysis

  • Dr Peter Brown, physiological support to the British Army, the Royal Air Force and United Arab Emirates Armed Forces.

Our range of innovative teaching materials gives you a varied and enjoyable learning experience and our expert online tutors will support you all the way. We've developed cutting edge learning materials for areas that include Asthma, Diabetes, Public Health (with an international perspective), Minor Injuries, Palliative Care and Evidence Based Practice, that can be taken as part of the top up, or studied independently as part of your continuing professional development (CPD).

A course with high professional standards

That’s largely due to the fact that we work hard to listen to employers in the health and social care sector when designing and updating this course. There has been significant consultation with Strategic Health Authorities, stakeholders and regulatory bodies.  That means you can rely on this course to refresh your skills and keep you up to date with current practice, as well as enhancing your employability.

There’s room in your life for online study

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.  As a nurse it would be very difficult to work any other way due to the demanding nature of the profession, so this type of study is ideal.
