Student nurse on a mock hospital ward

Nursing

You want to improve people’s lives. We’ve spent 25 years training nurses to do just that. We know real-life healthcare doesn’t happen in a classroom, so we work closely with the NHS to make your learning as authentic as possible. You’ll get hands-on experience in our mock hospital wards, and out on placement.
