If you are looking for a rewarding career in nursing or allied health areas, Newman University provides a dedicated learning environment with the latest facilities, including a clinical simulation suite and an immersive lab to recreate the experience of working in a busy health care environment.

Our three distinct courses in Adult Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Physiotherapy are delivered in a supportive teaching and learning environment where individuals can develop inter-professional working and an understanding how their role fits within a team of staff to support a patients’ recovery.

The pathways for students are enhanced with professional practice placements from partners giving a range of practical clinical experiences, preparing students for a rapidly changing clinical landscape. Whether administering care and support to individuals or supporting wider healthcare needs of communities, students can be equipped with the skills and emotional understanding that are required to become a qualified practitioner.
