Sunderland, Tyne and Wear
Faculty of Applied Sciences and Nursing & Caring Professions

Health care is a huge employer in the North East and this is reflected in our strong focus on the caring professions. Sunderland is one of the top ten places in the UK to study Nursing, and the National Quality Assurance Agency rates our teaching and assessment as excellent.

Programmes within this area cover nursing and a variety of short courses which include health promotion and public health, management of chronic heart failure, clinical skills for nurses, practice development, palliative care and dementia care, drug and alcohol use, management of long term conditions and more. You will find these short courses extremely beneficial if you are a professional seeking to enhance your qualifications and to continue your professional development.

We aim to develop not just theoretical knowledge, but also the practical skills to make a bigger contribution to your chosen field. Our students have an excellent track record of going on to jobs or further study, and making a difference in people's lives.
