Welcome from the Executive Dean
I am delighted to welcome you to the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, which traces its history back to the world’s first professional nurse training school, established by Miss Nightingale in 1860. Building on that tradition, our aim is to deliver excellence in all our education and research programmes and in developing the future leaders in nursing and midwifery.
We hope that you will enjoy the challenge and inspiration of taking forward your education at King’s. The Faculty is part of the King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre, which brings together world-class research, teaching and clinical practice. You will also benefit from our extensive network of links with both NHS and private trusts within the UK and across the globe.
Patients have a right to be cared for by well-educated, compassionate and committed healthcare professionals and we are proud to be developing you the workforce of the future. I wish you every success in your studies at King’s and in your future career.
Professor Ian Norman
