Do you want to study nursing?

Do you want to study nursing? If so, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is working in partnership with the NHS across Lancashire and South Cumbria to provide a new practice-based pathway of the BSc (Hons) Nursing with Registered Nurse (Adult), which begins on Monday, January 9th, 2023.

To help address the increasing shortages of adult nurses across local acute trusts, the programme will be operated from a new satellite centre at Preston College, with the theoretical elements being delivered by NHS staff and UCLan. Students will then receive their clinical placement with their local Trust, subject to capacity.

This programme will open up a new pathway through the existing pre-registration nursing programme, already delivered by the University. Programme learning outcomes and assessment criteria will remain the same, but delivery patterns may change to better facilitate recruitment from target populations. The programme will be subject to the same fees as the traditional University degree programme.

For more information on the programme, you can register for an open event, which takes place on Saturday, September 24th, between 10am and 2pm, in Education Centre 1, Royal Preston Hospital, via email at or learn more here.
