We are committed to providing our students with outcome-focused curricula and with developing professionalism, shaped by innovative teaching and learning practices. We aspire to become recognised leaders in the provision of health sciences education both nationally and internationally.

Our key goal is to empower nurses and midwives to be able to demonstrate the difference that they make to practice, and in doing so, to be able to respond accordingly to the leadership and professional challenges that they face every day.
