The School of Nursing and Advanced Practice has recently been restructured to enhance the focus on undergraduate and postgraduate nursing and advanced multidisciplinary practice. Situated in the Faculty of Health, the School plays a key role in the development of the current and future health workforce. The post graduate portfolio is significant and increasing each year with various local, regional, and national programmes. The School plays a pivotal role in the Advanced Practice agenda regionally. The Faculty of Health strives to tackle health inequalities, social exclusion and deprivation in local communities and beyond, through our undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, along with a growing programme of international partnerships and student opportunities. There is a developing culture of multidisciplinary research into post- graduate education, simulation and advanced practice poised for additional growth and funding.
