ABOUT THE Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery
CAREERS As the number one school of nursing and midwifery in London, we enjoy an excellent reputation producing outstanding clinicians and world leaders in specialist areas. Students who qualify from our programmes gain professional registration as a nurse or midwife respectively from the Nursing and Midwifery Council. With excellent employability from our programmes, many of our qualifying nurses gain employment in prominent London NHS Trusts, while others choose to work elsewhere in the UK and abroad. There is a varied choice of career destinations from hospitals to community/primary care, research to teaching, management to media. Whatever the chosen pathway, students will be well prepared to meet the challenges of a modern career in nursing and the complexities of tomorrow's healthcare. Midwives who graduate from King's are actively recruited by both national and international employers. Many are involved in innovative practices and others work as independent midwives. Many return for further graduate study in midwifery or women's health.
TEACHING STYLE A comprehensive range of teaching and learning methods are used, each tailored to the particular area of study being undertaken, with simulation playing an increasingly significant role in clinical education. Formal lectures account for only a small proportion of the curriculum. As a School we aim to acknowledge the individuality of our students. Student-centred learning is pivotal to our philosophy and the teaching methods employed encourage and support self development and awareness through reflection on experience. We utilise practitioners, researchers and lecturers to deliver high quality research-based teaching.
STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMMES & ASSESSMENT The programmes include an equal balance of theoretical learning and clinical placement with our partner healthcare providers including leading NHS Trusts together with private and voluntary organisations. Programmes are full-time and during clinical practice students work a shift pattern similar to that of the qualified nurse/midwife. A variety of coursework, written and practical exams are used to assess students. Clinical practice is also assessed.
LOCATION The School is located in the heart of London on the Waterloo Campus on the South Bank of the river Thames. Close links are maintained with the major teaching hospitals and NHS Trusts across London as well as private healthcare providers. Nursing and midwifery students have wide-ranging and unique opportunities to gain experience in some of the most prominent hospitals in London, alongside other areas where healthcare is delivered. This affords students the opportunity to rehearse a wide range of skills, while applying their theoretical learning to practice situations, enabling them to progress their knowledge and understanding of the discipline.

SPECIAL NOTES Nurses and midwives are involved in caring for vulnerable members of society and there is a necessity for all nursing and midwifery students to have enhanced Criminal Records Bureau disclosures. Prior to commencing the programme you must also have occupational health clearance. Students are not required to pay tuition fees for programmes leading to registration as a nurse or midwife.
