International Nurses Day puts spotlight on nursing careers

International Nurses Day celebrates the fantastic work nurses do in contributing such a valuable service to society and the University of West London is proud to train the next generation of talent at its College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare (CNMH), which is a major provider of nursing and midwifery courses in London and Berkshire.

We recently invested £1m in a high-tech Simulation Centre, as part of an ongoing major investment programme in teaching and learning facilities. The Centre enables nursing students to practice and develop competence with confidence, by using cutting-edge resources with support from dedicated staff.

Our expert teaching staff, fantastic range of innovative facilities and close links with healthcare providers make our student nurses proud to study with us, which has been reflected in the University’s performance in league tables for the higher education sector.

In The Complete University Guide 2018, we are the No.1 modern London University for student satisfaction in nursing and also joint No.1 for graduate prospects. Meanwhile, in the National Student Survey 2016, the CNMH ranked top for student satisfaction in London, fifth in England and ninth in the United Kingdom, overall. Our midwifery course also achieved a score of 100% in the Survey.

Commenting on International Nurses Day, interim Dean of the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare, Steve Hams, said: ‘Today is our opportunity to recognise the significant contribution that nurses make in delivering highly skilled, responsive and compassionate care. 

‘Here at the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare, we are proud of our students for everything they achieve in their studies in preparation for rewarding careers. Nursing is a great career and our academic team is proud to deliver great prospects for our nursing graduates.’
