Ratings reveal universities with 'most satisfied' nursing students

  • Comment

The University of Worcester’s nursing department is celebrating after its students were revealed by a survey to be the most satisfied in the country.

The newly published National Student Survey showed 100% of those studying nursing across the adult, children’s and mental health first degree courses had agreed with the statement “overall, I am satisfied with the quality of the course”.

Comparatively few nursing courses gained the 100% statistic in the independent survey, with midwifery sciences at Queen’s University Belfast and nursing studies (child nursing) at University of Surrey also among the select group.

Midwifery courses at the University of the West of Scotland and University of Chester also hit the mark, along with mental health nursing (BNurs) at the University of Manchester.

Cardiff University saw its child nursing BNS and pre-registration midwifery BM hit the 100% overall satisfaction mark. The pre-registration adult nursing studies BSc at Teesside University also made the grade.

The Worcester institution has also seen its training ranked “good” in all of the five areas covered by the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Annual Monitoring Review.

Vice chancellor professor David Green said he was “delighted”, adding that “100% of our nursing graduates are snapped up into employment”.

“Along with our partners in the hospitals, hospices and health care settings, the university is committed to ensuring that all of our graduates are equipped with the right knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to succeed as nurses,” he said.

More information about the 2012 survey results for different courses can be found on the government’s UNISTATS website.
