Nursing is challenging, stressful - and arguably one of the most worthwhile, rewarding careers you could choose. UCLan is one of the UK’s leading providers of health and social care education. We’re committed to excellence at every level - in learning, teaching, innovation and research to offer every student the very best opportunities and learning experiences in the classroom and in clinical practice - and offer programmes approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC].

Students in clinical skills lab


Students on our Nursing courses will make use of our state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories which are stocked with a vast range of equipment. The labs provide a safe environment in which to put theoretical knowledge into practice, providing skills that can be transferred directly into real-world clinical placements.
