School of Nursing and Midwifery 20 year anniversary
The School of Nursing and Midwifery marked its 20 year anniversary with an event at Keele Hall. The event, which featured displays that focused on the past, present and future of Nursing and Midwifery education, was attended by local dignitaries, alumni and current students, and included talks from two national speakers, Hilary Garratt, Director of Nursing – Nursing Division, NHS England, and Professor Lisa-Bayliss-Pratt, Director of Nursing & Deputy Director of Education and Quality, Health Education England.
Over the last 20 years, Nursing and Midwifery education has developed from a diploma to all graduate professions in line with other health professions. The School works closely in partnership with NHS local Trusts and other health organisations to ensure students develop knowledge and skills to deliver evidence-based practice, lead compassionate care and make appropriate clinical decisions in a range of care settings.
The School is currently rated nationally as 2nd in England in The Guardian League Tables 2016.
