International Nurses' day 2020

We're celebrating International Nurses' Day


It’s International Nurses' Day today and it’s the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth 200 years ago this year. Nurses have never been more important to the country than during this pandemic and we’re proud to play a key role in developing nurses in hospitals across the country and the next generation, here at the School of Healthcare. 

We train nurses from all walks of life, ages and gender on our Adult nursing, Child nursing and Mental health nursing degrees and we’re partners with the NHS, who provide practice experience for our student nurses in hospitals and communities across the region.

We made these short films to celebrate our nursing community and why they chose the nursing profession. They show why nurses are special and why we need them more than ever today.
