Nursing facilities

As part of your nursing studies at ARU, you will have access to:

  • purpose-built simulated hospital wards offering the very best in experiential learning
  • registered, practising tutors and lecturers who’ll make sure you’re being taught the latest techniques and give you the support you need to succeed
  • a new training grant for student nurses worth at least £5,000 a year.

Our post-registration nursing degrees are a great way to develop your career. With courses ranging from Neonatal Care to Specialist Community Public Health Nursing, your degree will provide you with the knowledge and skills to work at a higher level of critical care in your region. You’ll also have the potential to take your career in alternative directions such as healthcare leadership, research or education.

We work closely with the NHS and other care providers to help you hone your hands-on skills. This includes access to excellent facilities that mimic real-life clinical situations. Gain the advanced knowledge you need to provide exceptional care, and pursue opportunities in leadership and research.

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.
