About

With a clear focus on translating academic theory into positive practical outcomes for practitioners, patients, and carers, our cutting-edge nursing research addresses an extensive range of issues from professional working and patient care, to the development of new treatments and interventions.

Our students are currently researching topics including the emotional experiences of children’s nurses while caring for life-limiting conditions, and nursing students’ care towards obese patients.

As a student at our College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policy makers both in the UK and abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.
