A Celebration of Nursing

Are you ready for a career in nursing? A career that is hugely rewarding, transforming lives and society.

If you are finishing school, college or are thinking of a career change, have you ever considered a career in nursing? Here are just some of the reasons you should consider a nursing degree:

  • Employability: healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors which means you will be in high demand. With people living longer, there is a demand for trained professionals to provide care and support.
  • Job satisfaction: every single day of your career you will transform people’s lives.
  • Diversity: each day is different and you will have numerous opportunities to develop new skills and responsibilities.
  • Global opportunities: you can take your career anywhere in the world.
  • Development opportunities: It is crucial that NHS staff keep up-to-date with the relevant knowledge, skills and regulations to maintain patient safety.

As the main provider of nursing, midwifery and paramedic education in the North-east of Scotland, we have a strong reputation for producing skilled, compassionate and professional graduates.

We still have places available to study an undergraduate degree this September. Each course will prepare you to play a key role in partnership-working, caring and supporting individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent ill-health and enable people to improve their mental and physical wellbeing. You will be equipped to work as part of collaborative multi-agency teams, in a range of healthcare settings.
