About the school

At the forefront of the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Department of Nursing provides adult nursing and nursing associate students with all they need to excel.

We combine research-driven education and clinical practice with the opportunity to be involved in high-quality research projects in healthcare. The department carries out nationally and internationally recognised research in a dynamic, welcoming and inclusive environment with excellent facilities.

Our new, £28-million Health Campus is one of the finest training environments in the country. Its quality is matched by the breadth of the courses we offer.

Our exciting range of contemporary programmes consist of BSc Nursing (Adult), MSc and BSc Midwifery, BSc Nursing (Adult) Apprenticeship, BSc Child Nursing, BSc Nursing (Learning Difficulty), BSc Nursing (Mental Health) and Nursing Associate Apprenticeship.

Our portfolio also includes the University Certificate in Health and Social Care Practice and Alternative Route programme designed to equip students to meet the entry criteria to be eligible to apply for our suite of professional programmes including Nursing (all fields), Midwifery, Operating Department Practice, Paramedic Science and Social Work.

Our strong links with national, local and regional agencies include the military, where we advise on serving and veteran women’s health. Staff members from our department are delivering expert critical care knowledge in the NHS Nightingale Hospital (based in Harrogate). Our team also includes experts in public health in areas such as immunisation training.

Our highly-qualified, experienced academic staff work with local healthcare providers to deliver innovative research and future-led health-related programmes in some of the UK's most advanced facilities.
