The School of Nursing and Midwifery
The School of Nursing and Midwifery was established in 1995 following integration of the Sheffield and North Trent College of Nursing and Midwifery into the University of Sheffield.
Commitment to development
The School is committed to expanding the range of educational opportunities in all subject groups. We embrace recent advances in problem-based and enquiry-based learning and seek to increase access through a blend of e-learning and distance learning methods, as well as traditional face-to-face contact courses and study days.
Following the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, Nursing at The University of Sheffield is now ranked among the top ten in the UK for research that is considered world leading, with 50% of our research being considered of internationally excellent quality. Find out about our Research
