We would particularly welcome applications from those who have an interest in:

  • Long term conditions
  • Clinical skills
  • Community nursing
  • Quality Improvement

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery is part of the university’s School of Health, Social Care and Life Sciences that brings together all health researchers and related teaching at UHI. Based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, we have a campus in Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, and in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. We provide accessible, evidence informed education for nurses and other health and social care professionals, including undergraduate and postgraduate students, and are committed to supporting our students to make a significant contribution to the care of patients and the public.

We foster a strong research community locally and build research collaborations nationally and internationally in order to conduct high quality applied research that improves health and wellbeing within the Highlands and Islands and addressing key health questions relevant to Scotland and beyond.
