Nursing and Midwifery

We have a strong healthcare provision of pre-registration and post-registration programmes in Nursing, Midwifery, public and professional healthcare that prepares you for work across the NHS, private and volunteering sectors.

Ranked 10th in the country for Nursing and Midwifery in the Best UK University Guardian League table (2021) and consistently achieving a high students’ employment rate, you can be confident that you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge when you graduate.

Our Nursing and Midwifery programmes, which are accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and the General Dental Council (GDC), consistently produce effective nurses and midwifes who embrace the highest standards of professional conduct and ethical practice.

Taught by qualified academic tutors with expertise in clinical and academic fields, our programmes have a strong focus on a practice-based learning and teaching. Our Adult Nursing, Children & Young People’s Nursing, Learning Disability Nursing, Mental Health Nursing, Midwifery and Dental Nursing courses prepare you for a rewarding profession in your chosen area of health. We offer excellent placement opportunities with our NHS and private sector healthcare partners throughout your studies. You will be introduced to a range of care settings to familiarise you with emerging patterns of care and allow you to choose a specialist area within your field of study.

At the University of Northampton, we offer a range of short courses and continuing professional development (CPD) programmes in nursing and health. These will enable health professionals to learn new skills, progress into specialisms or take on new responsibilities.
