In September 2019 the University of Exeter is launching a unique four year MSci in Nursing. With our clinical partners we formed the Exeter Academy of Nursing in May 2018 to support and nurture nurses at the forefront of innovation, research, clinical practice and leadership. September 2019 marks the start of realising this vision.

In our Academy we will make a difference by educating the world’s finest nurses using unsurpassed educational and clinical practices. Our MSci programme will have ‘best in class’ student to staff ratios with student cohorts of 30-60 students per year allowing lecturers, students, clinicians and our patient and public involvement team to work very closely together. Students will study nursing in our state of the art classrooms, brand new simulation facilities and exemplary clinical environments.

Our educational and clinical team will deliver an innovative, integrated curriculum melding together the fundamentals of nursing care, patient and public involvement, evidence for practice, global health, and leadership and management, always ensuring that the Exeter Nurse never forgets that there can be ‘no health without mental health’. Our graduates will exit as scientist practitioners in nursing, with either an Adult or dual Adult/Mental Health Nursing degree. All of them will be equipped with the enhanced nursing skills necessary for their work as future nurse leaders.

If you share this vision of excellence, we need you to join our team. We mostly require a wide range of experience/skills across adult field competency areas, and are particularly interested in candidates with experience of theory and practice education in anatomy and physiology, pharmacology and fundamental nursing care skills such as mobility, nutrition, hydration, cleanliness, elimination and communication. We are also looking for candidates with experience of caring for older people with comorbid physical and common mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and dementia.
