Course taster

Welcome from the academic lead

Welcome to this short taster! These tasters are examples of learning so you can see the types of material we use for our courses. At the University of Derby we believe in providing you with high quality learning materials and this is never more important than if you’re learning about something which has a clinical or practice focus. This content from this taster taken from the Care of the Surgical Patient module and is very indicative of the type of learning material you’ll find across the Nursing studies BSc (Hons) top-up course.

Our learning material has real-world examples of cases so you can apply your learning and we use advanced bespoke tools and technologies to provide you with deep learning. We've developed our learning material with academics from across the globe who are experts in their fields, many of which are or have been practitioners in nursing, health or social care. Many have extensive publication records and have written books on their subjects.

I hope you enjoy studying this taster, and look forward to welcoming you onto one of our courses soon.
