    Our state-of-the-art Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre has some of the best training facilities and specialist equipment in the country.


    All of our Nursing & Midwifery students split their time between learning in the classroom and on-the-job in work placements with healthcare providers.


    Our modern Sighthill campus has some of the best teaching and simulation facilities in the country. These include the purpose-built Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre, which brings to life the theoretical principles learned in class, while providing a safe environment for the teaching and development of clinical skills in student nurses and midwives. The 1000m2 centre includes life-like hospital wards, including High Dependency Unit (HDU) simulator suites, which mimic intensive care treatment areas for training nurses, a midwifery suite and scrubs area. These diverse and impressive facilities will help you gain skills and experiences relevant to employers all over the world.

    Men Into Nursing and Midwifery

    In September 2020, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) reported that only 10.7% of the people on their register identified as male. We need a workforce as diverse as the people it cares for and Edinburgh Napier welcomes people from all backgrounds. We recognise the benefits our male students bring to our nursing and midwifery courses and the professions. Read more from some of our male nursing students and alumni.
    • Our students have undertaken placements in Australia and Zambia and various countries in between
    • Long summer holiday to allow for volunteering opportunities in Year 2
    • Mobility placements outwith Lothian and Borders, or with international organisations, in Year 3.


    Using your new-found skills in the workplace is a core part of our nursing and midwifery courses. We work closely with local healthcare providers to organise placements which allow you to put theory into practice, and you’ll get to prepare in advance in our simulated clinical environments.
