Student nurse on a mock hospital ward


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.

We're here Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm (please note we close at 3.30pm on the first and third Thursday of the month for staff training), and Friday 9am-4.30pm.

Here in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, we're looking forward to equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to make a difference as a nurse.

If you thrive on the unexpected and want to make a difference in people’s lives, a career in a nursing setting could be for you. We offer Adult, Child, Mental Health and Nursing Associate degrees so you can specialise, and follow the path that's right for you. As a student here you'll benefit from outstanding nursing facilities, supportive staff and a great range of placement opportunities.

We're the largest provider in England for nursing, midwifery, and health & social care, and have been shortlisted for the Nursing Times Pre-reg Provider of the Year award in both 2019 and 2020.

"I wanted the hands-on experience of working through a pandemic, allowing myself to expand the knowledge and skills that I'll eventually need when I become a registered nurse."
