Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care

 

King’s students have the power to make a real difference in London and the rest of the world.

Our teaching and research equips healthcare professionals with the tools to transform patients’ lives in our local communities, across London and around the world.

Key London priorities for the faculty:

  • To implement the student-led Lambeth homelessness volunteering service in collaboration with the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences, Lambeth Council and St Mungo's.
  • To continue to contribute to the health and wellbeing of communities in London through the service of the faculty's students to the NHS across the capital.
  • To contribute to the cross-London Capital Nurse initiative and to lead the Capital Midwife research project on the recruitment and retention of midwives in the city.
  • To design and develop new nursing modules with a focus on the health and wellbeing of communities in London.

Current initiatives include:

  • Mental Health Nursing student, Matt Waugh, launched Live More to provide daily supported exercise for hospital inpatients with severe mental illness in the psychiatric intensive care unit at St Charles Hospital in London.
  • Our researchers are working with London’s South Asian population to offer customised self-management education programmes to patients living with type 2 diabetes.
  • A pioneering new module from the faculty explores the diverse experiences of young Londoners. It aims to provide the capital’s future nurses with a deeper understanding of how biological, sociological and psychological factors can shape a young person’s life in the city.
