10 reasons why you should study Nursing at BNU
We have a long history of training nurses and giving them the knowledge and practice-based experience they need to provide excellent patient care. If you’re thinking about studying nursing and considering your options, here’s just a few reasons why we think we should be your top pick!
1. Student satisfaction
We’re proud to say that our nursing courses are in the top 10 in London and the South East for student satisfaction according to The Complete University Guide 2022.
Across the University, we have a strong focus on helping our students to be in the best position to enter the world of work. 95% of our graduates are in employment or further study within 15 months of graduating (HESA, 2021).
3. State-of-the-art simulation facilities
We have adult and paediatric simulation labs, as well as mock operating theatres, counselling rooms and so much more to replicate the vast settings that nurses operate in.
4. Teaching excellence
Our highly experienced lecturers maintain close links to practice to help ensure that our teaching is current and in-line with practice today.
This, in combination with our great facilities and graduate outcomes, led towards us being awarded Silver in the most recent Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF 2018).
6. Support on placement
We think it’s really important to ensure you keep a close connection with us during your time out on clinical placement.
We are one of the only universities that have practice visitors come out and see you during this time, helping to ensure you’re fully supported.
7. Student success
The hard work and long hours over the three years paid off for our students – 82% of our 20-21 nursing graduates achieved a 1st or 2:1 award in their degree.
8. Award winning
We understand that University can be a challenging time for some, so we have created a vast support package for our students.
Our Student Hub provides a central point for students to get key information on many University services including our free, confidential Counselling Service, our Disability Service, the various bursaries and grants that BNU offer and more.
10. Top 5 Students’ Union
Our Nursing Society is one of the most active, and organises various activities to support your academic studies as well as social events.
