The School of Health and Social Care of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is a leading provider of education programmes for health and social care practitioners.
We provide contemporary education and training to meet the needs of today's multi-disciplinary health service, equipping students to become competent, confident professionals, registered to practice in their chosen field. Our education programmes are delivered in partnership with colleagues in local Trusts and PCTs to fully integrate theoretical understanding with clinical skills.
We offer pre-registration, professional preparatory undergraduate programmes for those wishing to qualify as a Registered Nurse (RN), Midwife (RM), Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) or Paramedic Practitioners for the first time. We also offer second registration programmes and undergraduate, post- registration programmes for qualified practitioners who wish to explore a different area of nursing.
We also provide continuing professional development post-registration modules and programmes for qualified practitioners to enable them to further enhance their skills and develop their careers, whether in practice, management or education.
In addition, we offer a range of postgraduate opportunities in research and further academic study integrated with clinical practice.
