Why study nursing & midwifery at King's?
King's is the largest provider of healthcare professional training in Europe, with the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing & Midwifery being the only school of nursing in London allied with a medical school and health-related sciences.
Situated in the heart of London and linked with a range of leading NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers, the School promotes the concept of the broader perspective of nursing. Our nursing programmes are strongly practice-focused to enable our students to gain a wide range of experiences and to develop the highest standards of nursing care.
At King's we also aim to blend the traditions of the School with cutting-edge approaches to midwifery practice and education based on the best available evidence and research. We believe strongly that our selection procedures assist us in choosing the students likely to become the finest midwives, who are able to influence the future health of women and their families.
Our staff are practising clinicians and experts in their field at the forefront of developments in a wide range of nursing specialisms and in midwifery. Research flourishes and the vibrant atmosphere means that many students return for further study and professional development after qualification and throughout their careers. Students will benefit from learning and working with leading healthcare providers including King's Health Partners, the UK's largest Academic Health Sciences Centre which brings together King's College London and three NHS Foundation Trusts: Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley. The collaboration integrates world-leading research, teaching and clinical service to deliver real improvements in care for both local people and patients from further afield.
