School of Nursing
Change someone's life today
Nursing offers a rewarding career that will help you really make a difference to people's lives.
Today's NHS is going through a period of unprecedented change providing new opportunities for dynamic and ambitious young people to influence the delivery of healthcare. Nurses are learning new skills and taking on more responsibility. There are more nurse-led specialist services and nurses are playing an active and independent role in managing people's health and wellbeing in hospital and the community.
The profession makes great intellectual and personal demands but is one of the most fulfilling career choices you can make. It takes a special kind of person to be a nurse and in return there are many rewards.
