Our Discover Nursing Day offers the chance to gain hands-on experience of the different degree courses on offer at Manchester, which include Child, Adult and Mental Health Nursing.
We are recognised as one of Europe’s leading nursing education and research departments and our graduates are highly employable. Find out why by working with existing staff and students in a taster lecture, workshops, seminars and clinical skills lab sessions.
You will have the opportunity to put questions to current staff and students and to explore our teaching facilities.
