School of Nursing & Allied Health
The School of Nursing and Allied Health has a long history of providing nursing training.
We work closely with the NHS, private and independent sector to provide rich and varied learning opportunities within the following areas:
- Adult nursing
- Children’s nursing
- Mental health nursing
- Operating department practice
- Assistant Practitioner
We also work in partnership with several organisations to provide a range of nursing and healthcare apprenticeships, and was one of the first universities to offer the Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship. We also have a strong track record of developing and delivering bespoke training for our partner organisations, including NHS trusts, healthcare services, support groups and charities.
Embracing therapeutic and technical nursing, our degree and postgraduate programmes are designed to challenge and support nurses in acquiring fundamental and higher-level skills, helping them develop both personally and professionally.
We encourage our students to adopt the seven key principles and values set out by the NHS Constitution in England.
Our students benefit from our state-of-the-art simulation facilities at our Uxbridge and High Wycombe Campuses. We use interesting, innovative and engaging methods of teaching, utilising technology in the classroom, making use of advanced simulation facilities, and incorporating research and the latest evidence based practice into our curricula.
The quality of our nursing teaching is evident in our high employability rates. 96% of our nursing students, and 100% of our operating department practice students, are in work or further study six months after graduating*. Our DipHE Operating Department Practice course also scored 100% overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2018.
