Study Nursing

Challenge yourself to become a future leader in healthcare

Department of Health Sciences

Combine the academic rigour of a degree from a research-intensive university with the professional education needed to allow you to become a registered nurse.

At York, we believe there’s a difference between training and education. That’s why we’ve built innovative, research-informed teaching into every step of your path to becoming an effective nurse.

Through a combination of hands-on practical experience gained through clinical placements around the region and theoretical study in the classroom, you’ll learn how to provide effective care and ask challenging questions. You’ll be taught by experienced academics whose work is changing the way we think about health and healthcare.

As a graduate from our Department, you’ll become a registered practitioner. You’ll also have the analytical and critical thinking skills you need to become a proficient and confident leader in the future of health and healthcare.
