Nurses leave the Faculty and go on to the wide range of career opportunities available for them. 100% of full-time students on this programme find employment or progress to further study within six months of finishing their course (Higher Education Statistics Agency 2017).
Some choose to specialise in areas such as supporting children or adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities, others go into community based posts in acute assessment and treatment services or multi-disciplinary teams.
Management and leadership are desirable career options as are opportunities for practice education and research. Nurses leaving the University of Hull have been successful in finding employment either before graduation or within a short time. Many stay in the area but some have moved away to a successful career in other areas and some have gone abroad to countries such as Australia.
With a portfolio of continuing professional development opportunities, students can expect to maintain their relationship with their ‘alma mater’- all nurses need to be able to mentor the next generation of nurses so the mentorship in practice module is usually the first port of call. From then nurses can study at masters level using our flexible framework to undertake education in key areas of practice including leadership and advanced practice. Additionally there is the opportunity to study for a PhD.
We also work with our NHS service partners on more bespoke and specific development for staff and teams.
