Health and Social Care courses
Our Chesterfield Campus is home to our nationally recognised Adult Nursing degrees and Mentoring in Practice modules. These courses are accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, so when you graduate you’ll be eligible to register and practice as a nurse in the UK.
The University of Derby is delighted to have opened its new Chesterfield Campus in October 2016. This has allowed us to build on the existing experience and success meeting the challenges of the modern health sector across the East Midlands to offer an outstanding learning environment and some of the best facilities available in the UK for our Adult Nursing degrees and Mentoring in Practice modules. State of the art equipment includes a clinical skills suite, mock ward and an immersive simulation suite to represent a range of working environments.
This substantial investment in real world learning reflects the University of Derby’s commitment to providing relevant and highly personal education. When combined with the existing strong relationships with local healthcare providers and other employers, it ensures some of the highest employability rates for our students in the UK, with 100% of our nursing students in a professional or managerial job six months after finishing their course.
Health and Social Care courses to be offered at the new Chesterfield Campus include:
- BA (Hons) Health and Social Care
- BSc (Hons) Child and Family Health and Wellbeing degrees
- BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy Principles and Practice (available September 2018)
