Welcome from our Programme Lead

"I am passionate about nurse education and clinical excellence. As a nurse educator I am excited to be part of this innovative Nursing programme. I hope you find the idea of being part of Exeter’s pioneering brand of nursing, as wonderful as I do.

I have found nursing to be the most amazing profession and hope that your nursing career will be as fulfilling, inspiring, and empowering as mine. Your education will shape your nursing. It is a powerful influence on your future. I want you to be excited and challenged, but I also want you to really enjoy the experience. Exeter will provide you with a strong nursing identity within a cohesive group of students and staff - we want to develop you as individuals, nurses, and future leaders.

At Exeter, we (the University, our clinical partners, and patient representatives) have developed a truly unique nursing programme for you. It integrates physical and mental health. We can offer elective placements at home or abroad. Our four-year MSci Nursing programme enables you to develop beyond the level of a traditional adult nursing programme. In your final year, you may specialise in Mental Health Nursing or develop and advance your specialist clinical practice, and explore research, leadership, or education all at masters’ level. This final year will help position you for rapid career progression. Our clinical partners are fully supportive of Exeter’s radical approach. They are seeking inspiring and motivated nursing scientists to shape and lead nursing.

My aspiration is that Exeter nurses will be amazing, dynamic nurses and that our programme will provide an exceptional foundation to launch your career. If you share my vision and want to be part of our wonderful community our programme is designed for you."
