About us

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery brings together specialists in adult nursing, children's and young people's nursing, learning disability nursing, mental health nursing and midwifery.

We’ll give you the practical experience and expert knowledge to make a positive difference to people’s lives, whatever stage of your Nursing or Midwifery career.

The Department has strong links with external agencies including a number of NHS Trusts and Primary Care Trusts and voluntary agencies.

Academic staff from the Department collaborate with partners across the health and social care sectors in research, practice development and education initiatives. Staff from practice contribute to teaching on both the pre and post-qualifying programmes, and partnerships between practice and education are fostered.
