School of Nursing and Midwifery
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 Interim Head of Nursing and Midwifery School
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.
There is a real demand for nurses and midwives around the country – if you have the compassion, care and courage needed, a degree from BNU will teach you everything you need to know to kickstart your career.
Taught across our Uxbridge and Aylesbury Campuses, you’ll benefit from highly skilled lecturers and technicians that bring a wealth of clinical expertise in their teaching. Our campuses are equipped with their own state-of-the-art simulation facilities. 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.
In addition to our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional practice programmes, we also offer short courses and stand-alone modules for qualified practitioners to help them continue their professional development and enhance their skills in their specialist area as well as a range of apprenticeships. We also have a strong track-record of creating and running bespoke training for NHS Trusts, healthcare services, support groups and charities.
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.
“The last three years were the most empowering and challenging of my life so far, and I’ve loved every one of them. I’ve gained a wide range of knowledge through lectures and clinical experiences in a variety of hospitals and other settings.”Sarah, Children's Nursing
