Division of Nursing

Engage and belong, be part of the tree growing; branching out, rooted.

Welcome to the Division of Nursing at Queen Margaret University. Here you will find information on the variety of nursing and health-related programmes currently available at Queen Margaret University.  Over the years, the nursing portfolio has rapidly grown and today a variety of nursing and health-related programmes are on offer.

Our educational approach, research, practice development and knowledge exchange activities are underpinned by a philosophy of respect for others and for all people to experience mutual respect and understanding in health and social care relations.

Our work aims at:

  • Establish clear links between persons, the environment, health and wellbeing, through practice orientated and work-based learning;
  • Apply the use of research evidence and scholarship to devise person-centred interventions with a view to advancing and improving practice in a collaborative and inter-professional way;
  • Adopt a person-centred approach to facilitating learning and thus enabling critical engagement and interaction;
  • Ensure that students have and develop the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to practice in a person-centred way.

Should you choose QMU as your university of choice to continue your nursing and healthcare development you will enjoy a nurturing, supportive, developmental, challenging and engaging team who are highly committed to and passionate about excellent person-centred and evidence-informed practice.
