Nursing and Health Care

Nursing at Glasgow is committed to evidence based practice and research that enhances patient care and service delivery and which underpins our teaching. Nursing research activity is multi-professional, patient-centred and collaborative and sits mainly within the themes of Cancer (including Lymphoedema) and care and Symptom Management. We have an active post-graduate research community and offers MSc (Research) and PhD programmes on a full or part time basis.

At undergraduate level we offer an Honours Degree (4 years) leading to Registration in Nursing. Our students have rated the School as the Best in the UK and our highly valued graduates have excellent employment prospects. We have access to excellent facilities and a wide range of world renowned experts in their subjects. A strong science component, integrated with caring and leadership skills and strongly underpinned by research is a unique feature of our programme. We have excellent relationships with clinical staff across NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde where students have clinical placements.

The School offers a flexible programme of multi-professional postgraduate courses that may be taken individually or towards a postgraduate certificate, diploma or masters degree. The MSc in Health Care programme is designed to develop the knowledge and skills required to lead advances in patient care and service delivery.
