There are few careers that are as rewarding, or that allow you to work with such a variety of people. Our Nursing courses will give you the specialist skills, education and training to prepare you for the workplace.
You will learn in our impressive health facilities. Our Clinical Simulation Centre replicates clinical environments for education and training. These include two, four-bedded bays to simulate a hospital setting, dedicated paediatric and maternity facilities, including a special care baby unit, an intensive care environment and an emergency department with a fully equipped ambulance simulator.
Funding is available for healthcare students on NHS funded courses in Wales. Find out more here.

The University prides itself on the support it gives to students on its nursing degrees, both practically and emotionally. Every student has a personal tutor and a module supervisor. During clinical placements students are fully supported by a qualified nurse who acts as a ‘mentor’.
Our nursing courses cover most aspects of healthcare professions. From becoming a registered nurse to tailoring your career into a specific healthcare profession, USW can help you to take the next step. You can specialise in a certain field, develop leadership and management skills and even study the education around healthcare theories.
