Careers and alumni
Example career paths that some of our graduates have followed.
Graduates from Nursing Studies are highly regarded throughout the world, with several Professors and leaders in nursing being Edinburgh alumni.
Whilst not all graduates go on to be famous in the world of nursing, most do pursue very successful careers in nursing and healthcare. Graduates from Edinburgh are highly thought of by prospective employers. The employment prospects for a graduate nurse are excellent and opportunities are wide-ranging.
