Department and facilities

We work closely with the Royal College of Nursing to explore how education meets the needs of the NHS workforce. This means that we're ideally placed to offer you high-quality courses, informed by the latest research in the field.


We're part of the University's Health Sciences School in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health.

We provide an excellent study environment for health professionals across our main campus and Clinical Skills Centre.


Our Clinical Skills Centre is based at the Northern General Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the country. The centre contains mock clinical wards, resuscitation suites, simulated theatres and teaching rooms – a perfect facility for training the healthcare professionals of tomorrow.
