Nursing and Paramedicine at NTU

The roles of nurses and paramedics are evolving. Today, they’re the heartbeat of community healthcare – compassionate, diligent, and involved more centrally in the sector than ever before.

With professional prospects broadening all the time, our exciting courses have been built to meet the full scope and standards of this important industry. Welcome to the new age of nursing and paramedicine.

We believe in real-world, hands-on, experiential learning. That’s why you’ll be taught by industry experts – nurses, paramedics, and experts from across the healthcare sector.

We run nursing courses at both our Clifton and Mansfield campuses.

In paramedicine, you’ll explore the whole range of routeways and potential specialisms in the sector. Whilst ambulance-based work remains the bread and butter of modern paramedics, they’re increasingly employed in private sector environments – from oil rigs to cruise ships.

Accredited degrees by the Nursing and Midwifery Council

On our nursing courses, you’ll gain a degree approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. You’ll analyse the patient journey and the services they access, preparing you for a wide range of roles in public and private sector environments. Nursing doesn’t start and end on hospital wards, and we’ll show you everything that’s on offer.

Upon successful completion of our 3-year BSc (Honours) paramedicine programme, you'll be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Paramedic.
