Start your journey into nursing with training from one of the leading providers in the North West. Take advantage of top facilities, including our new Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre, home to human patient simulators which can imitate a range of symptoms.

Pick from four specialist pathways – adult, child, learning disabilities, and mental health. Whichever one you choose, your degree will be accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. As soon as you graduate you’ll be eligible to register as a qualified nurse. Half of your time will be spent in practice in hospitals and community settings. Thanks to our connections, we offer a range of placement locations in the NHS and independent sector.

On this page you’ll find 360 tours of our facilities, videos and features to give you an insight into what it’s like to study Nursing at Edge Hill.


Our innovative Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine building provides some of the best teaching and learning resources in the country for nursing and midwifery students.

The clinical skills facilities include ward simulations and operating theatres with industry-standard equipment, as well as mannequins that can simulate a wide range of symptoms, from pregnancy to a high 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.
