We embed equality, diversity and inclusion into everything we do. We celebrate individuality and champion positive action. We also track our progress, including through the Athena Swan Silver Awards.
We collaborate and co-design to shape and improve our research, education, and global partnerships. We do this with students, staff, recipients of health and care, patients and those important to them, clinical teams and other communities.
We are ambitious in pursing new ideas and innovative thinking to improve evidence-based care and to influence policy, practice and public understanding.
We inspire and foster future leaders through our diverse, innovative and research-informed education programmes . Our graduates work across clinical nursing, midwifery, palliative, rehabilitation and interdisciplinary care. They are also researchers, clinical academics, health and care managers and scholars.
We strive to achieve the highest standards in student and staff experience, academic rigour and service to society.
We produce more highly cited outputs (top 1% citations) in palliative care than any other centre (SciVal 2021). Our Faculty is the second in the world for nursing and midwifery on the same metric. We have ranked 2nd in the world in the QS rankings for nursing for the past five years.
