School of Nursing and Midwifery

We've been educating nurses and midwives for over 25 years, and our goal is to produce competent, caring healthcare professionals who will ultimately improve the patient experience.

The possibilities of a career in care are endless and exciting and we’d love to take the first step of your journey with you with one of our undergraduate or postgraduate courses.
