Whilst a career in nursing or midwifery can be demanding and fast-paced, it is extremely rewarding. At Buckinghamshire New University, you’ll develop the skills and practice-based experience to safely and effectively provide care to the people who need you the most.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery has a good track record in training, nurturing and empowering the future leaders in health and social care. We believe in a culture of excellence and quality which are informed by the professional values of healthcare. At the heart of what we do is listening to our students and key stakeholders and working collaboratively to promote a community of healthcare professionals trained by Buckinghamshire New University, who stay and work locally.

Dr Paul Maloret Head of Nursing and Midwifery School

Our highly skilled lecturers and technicians bring a wealth of clinical expertise to their teaching. You’ll also benefit from our purpose-built wards, set up just like you’d find in a hospital.

Within this style of learning, real-time evolving clinical situations can be simulated, repeated and evaluated using reflection and debriefing to help you to hone your skills and get ready for practice.

When it comes to clinical placements, we work with various NHS Trusts, as well as private and independent businesses, to give our students real world experience as part of their course. Not only does this allow you to put learning into practice, but it also ensures you’re highly employable upon graduation.

Once you complete your degree, you’ll be able to join as a Registered Nurse or Midwife with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), which enables you to practice in the UK.
