The Gibraltar Health Authority, working in partnership with St George’s University of London and Kingston University London, is to offer another Gibraltar based BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult) Degree.

The Degree programme, which will commence in September 2019, is a full time three year programme. The School of Health Studies is inviting applications from persons who are interested in undertaking a BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing based in Gibraltar.

Persons who may be interested should contact the GHA School of Health Studies http://shs.gha.gi

Prospective students will be offered the chance to meet with members of staff and students to discuss the programme contents and requirements and to experience some of the teaching and learning resources that are used on the BSc (Hons) programmes. Those selected to undertake this exciting and challenging programme will be required to demonstrate a high level of personal commitment, alongside excellent communication skills.

Professor Ian Peate, Head of the GHA’s School of Health Studies: “This is an exciting and challenging nurse education programme that is delivered to the highest professional standards. External assessment is undertaken by a UK university, ensuring healthcare education that is on a par with international standards.”

The GHA’s Director of Nursing Services, Mrs Sandie Gracia, commented: “This is a practice-related course with an academic underpinning, aimed at those who wish to develop their knowledge, skills and personal qualities required to make an effective contribution to those people receiving care and support in Gibraltar. The degree meets local needs and reflects our dynamic and forward thinking strategy for health care provision.

The Minister for Health, Care and Justice, the Honourable Neil F. Costa MP, added: “This programme reflects the needs of our local population and offers our students a great opportunity to further their professional development, without having to travel abroad. The GHA’s School of Health Studies has a proven track record of providing programmes of study for a range of health and social organisations. This demonstrates yet another example of this Government’s continued investment towards the future of our Nursing Services. I would like to sincerely thank Ms Sandie Gracia, Professor Peate and Dr Coram and their excellent teams, who work ever so hard to ensure the bright and prosperous future of our Nursing Services. Further, I am pleased to report that, following very productive deliberations between the GHA and the University of Gibraltar, the BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing, will, as from September of 2020, be fully delivered by the University.”
