PhDs in Medicine & Health

Nursing

Nursing is a vocational subject. This means the study approach of a Nursing Bachelor’s or Master’s degree will have a more practice-oriented focus. You will learn how to take care of sick people and comfort them throughout their recovery period. This means advising them on the best health choices, administering prescribed medication, and taking care of their overall well-being.

You can normally choose to study in one of the four main nursing fields: adult nursing, children’s nursing, learning disability nursing or mental health nursing. As a student nurse, you will have the option to specialise in two of these four fields, if you choose to. You will learn general medical practices and how you should treat a person suffering from an illness. To be successful in a nursing job, you will also need to develop soft skills such as empathy and cooperation.

A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Nursing will help you become a nurse in one of the four main fields mentioned above, a paramedic, or a physician associate. In time, you can use your experience to take up a more demanding position, such as chief/head nurse, and thus manage and train your own team of nurses.
