Nursing facilities

Our Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough campuses all offer purpose-built nursing skills labs, in which our students are able to use sophisticated equipment to simulate many aspects of a working ward.

We have general nursing wards on all three campuses, as well as dedicated child nursing wards in Chelmsford and Cambridge.

Skills sessions are designed for our students to be hands-on and benefit from working in small groups to practice skills such as bed making, hand-washing, bandaging, communicating with patients, applying and interpreting basic monitoring, to only name a few. Skills sessions are an exciting part of the nursing courses at Anglia Ruskin University and we are constantly striving to use our facilities to their best possible advantage.

"As a newbie to healthcare entirely, the clinical domain was a complete enigma to me, but the skills lab was a fantastic place to begin to develop and enhance my clinical skills in a safe, supportive environment. Despite being taught certain skills within the lab, there were times where I lacked confidence. I voiced my worries to my skills lecturer and she set up extra sessions for anyone that felt they needed extra support"
