BSC (HONS) Nursing (TOP-UP)


This course is designed to top-up a registered nurse qualification (e.g. RGN, RMN, RN, RNMH, RSCN). On successful completion, you will have an honours degree that underlines your advanced clinical expertise and professionalism.

We know that degree qualifications are becoming increasingly vital and we assure you that Sunderland graduates have a strong record of career progression. The course is carefully structured to enhance skills that allow you to meet a wider range of challenges.
