About us

The School provides a high quality educational experience for students shaped by outstanding research, evidence-based practice and teaching, contributing positively to health and social care, locally, nationally and internationally.

About the School

Keele University School of Nursing and Midwifery is based in the Darwin Building in the heart of the University campus as well as the Clinical Education Centre within the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust.

The Clinical Education Centre is a contemporary building which houses not only aspects of the School of Nursing and Midwifery, but also incorporates part of the well-established Undergraduate and Postgraduate School of Medicine. The spacious and light interior of the building consists of seminar rooms, extensive clinical skills laboratories, inter-professional Health Library and IT laboratories, which not only provide high-tech learning and teaching facilities, but also allow and encourage multi-disciplinary learning and team working, an approach that we believe is key to developing a professional healthcare workforce for the future.
