University of Central Lancashire

The School provides a supportive environment for students and staff to develop their full potential and stimulates health and well-being within individuals and communities through dynamic, high quality education, research and knowledge transfer.

Approximately 200 academic staff and fifty administrative and support staff, together facilitate a range of taught undergraduate and post graduate modular based programmes and research degrees with over 5000 students. The school portfolio is developed collaboratively with partners in response to national policy and local needs, focusing on students developing evidence based knowledge, skills and person centred values in preparation for employment. Programmes are offered in nursing, midwifery, operating department practice, paramedic practice, counselling and psychological therapies, public health and complementary therapies. Courses are approved and monitored by professional statutory regulatory bodies.

In the Research Assessment Exercise (2008) Nursing and Midwifery research in the school was recognised as being within the top nine UK universities, with over 50% regarded as international standing. The school has a large professoriate working within specialist teams engaged in applied health care research, contributing to enhancement of policy and care delivery. Research funding has been secured through a variety of National, European and International sources.

The school is committed to development of staff through an academic staff induction and continuing professional development programme, recognised as good practice when monitored by the NMC in 2010.
