Nursing and Midwifery


Student nurses practice medicine administration in the clinical skills suite.Our 2-year MSc Nursing programmes provide a route for graduates to gain eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a professionally qualified nurse. Four pathways are available, enabling you to train in adult, children’s, learning disabilities or mental health nursing.

Alternatively, if you are already a registered nurse in adult care and would like to gain dual registration as a midwife, our 18-month MSc Midwifery enables you to specialise in maternal and neonatal care, gaining expertise in the provision of care for women with complex care needs. The programme carries professional accreditation with the NMC.

The clinical skills facilities include ward simulations and operating theatres with industry standard equipment, as well as robot-style mannequins that can simulate a wide range of symptoms, from pregnancy to a temperature, to ensure your learning experience is as realistic as possible.

Edge Hill University has excellent relationships with NHS hospital and community trusts, enabling us to offer practice-based learning opportunities in a variety of care contexts, with placements at more than 600 locations across Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire.
