"Studying the arts, literature, humanities and history relating to nursing practice allows students to understand the place of nursing in a social, cultural, economic, medical, political and historical context. This provides a vital opportunity to develop their ideas about individual patients’ and communities’ experience of health, illness, and receiving nursing care. It also enhances students’ cultural competency and engages them further in the cultural life of the University and our clinical, artistic and historical partners."

Ian Noonan, Head of the Department, Mental Health Nursing, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care
