About the School

Keele University School of Nursing and Midwifery is based at the Clinical Education Centre within the University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust.

The Clinical Education Centre, which opened in September 2004, is a contemporary, state-of-the-art, building which houses not only 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.
