Nursing Studies

As one of the first universities to offer a nursing degree in the UK (since 1956), the University of Edinburgh has a long tradition of preparing graduate nurses. We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, as well as continuing professional development courses. The undergraduate programme is a four-year programme which leads to a Bachelor of Nursing degree and registration as a nurse (adult branch). There are also several postgraduate degree programmes from taught MSc/Diplomas to PhD.

We offer a lively research environment that has a mix of interests and methods, we engage in innovative social science research which aims to improve patient and family experiences, develop practice and enhance nurse education through empirical and conceptual research.
