Case studies

We are the only provider of all fields of nursing and undergraduate midwifery training in Scotland, with 95.1% of our graduates in work or further study within six months of graduation (HESA 2014/15). 

Our graduates share their experiences at Edinburgh Napier...

“Edinburgh is a great place to do your nursing training as it is a small community and has really good connections with the hospitals.”

Emily Beaton

Graduate, Nursing (Child Health)

"The campus is brilliant, the Clinical Skills Centre is state-of-the-art and there is a great atmosphere. An added bonus is definitely that the Royal Hospital for Sick Children is situated in Edinburgh – other cities have a ward not a dedicated hospital."

"I spent three months of my final year in Odense, Denmark. I really wanted to do an Erasmus exchange so it was a great opportunity to continue studying and go abroad."

"The programme involves placements throughout which really embedded my learning as it put my studies to practical use. The balance of academic and practical experience encouraged an understanding of not only how to do techniques but why you are taking someone’s heart rate or respiratory rate."

"I now work as a nurse in A&E at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children. I love it and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Every day is different."
