Health & social care

At Edinburgh Napier we don't just teach you the theory. We go beyond the classroom, teaching you in NHS simulation wards to give you the skills and confidence to master your vocation in a supportive environment. This means that as soon as you leave us you're ready to start changing lives. 

Why study a health course with us?

The changing focus of the health and care sector onto patient-centred care, greater choice and control for service users, and awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles have increased the demand for well-trained and multi-skilled people in a wide range of rewarding roles.

A qualification from Edinburgh Napier University’s School of Health and Social Care will ensure you are equipped to meet these priorities. Embedded in all our courses is a strong emphasis on working across professional boundaries – with clients, service users and patients placed firmly at the centre.

Our courses

We offer an exciting range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in health and social care to enable you to meet the demands of employers in this diverse sector as soon as you've graduated. With our degrees in pre-registration nursing professionally accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) as a nursing graduate you will qualify with official Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registration.
