Each year we train thousands of nurses and midwives who are dedicated to making a difference for us, our families, friends and communities.

While studying with us, we make sure that the nurses and midwives of the future experience a caring and supportive environment that helps them to thrive. We look after them, so they can look after us all.

Caring big time about student support

"I had some fantastic opportunities on placements and met some lovely people who supported and guided me throughout my degree." - Cara Jane Jones, 3rd year Adult Nursing student

I just like the support [at ENU] that I've seen and heard about from many other previous nurses."

We are one of the largest providers of Nursing and Midwifery education in Scotland. Our School of Health & Social Care provides a vibrant teaching environment for over 2,500 students, delivering a unique learning experience that ensures you gain the skills and qualifications needed to become a Nursing and Midwifery Council registrant when you graduate.

You’ll learn in some of the best teaching facilities in the country, including our purpose-built Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre, which is run by a specialist team of nurses, doctors and midwives, and covers several practice areas - from community and critical care to general and labour wards. These facilities will help you gain experience relevant to all employers. Our links with local healthcare providers can provide placements, where you can put theory into practice in the real world.

Every student at Edinburgh Napier is assigned a Personal Development Tutor (PDT) during the first few weeks. You can check in with them and ask questions confidentially about study, life, or anything else. Whatever you may need, your PDT will help you find the right support!

On top of this, the School of Health and Social Care have a Student Experience team who offer tailored support for busy student nurses and midwives in university and while on placement. Their priority is to ensure students have the best possible experience while training to become a nurse or midwife.
