Name change for nursing school
May 17, 2017
From 1st September the University’s School of Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work and Social Sciences will change to the School of Health and Society.
The aim of the new name is to make the School more recognisable and showcase its expertise within the Health and Social Care.
It’s not the only change - the School recently unveiled a set of high-tech nursing simulation suites, with rooms designed to look exactly like hospital wards. It also has one of the only immersive simulation rooms used in a British university – featuring a series of cameras projecting realistic images onto three walls and the floor to create a virtual environment.
Margaret Rowe, Dean of the School, said: “As we face the opportunities presented by the Greater Manchester Devolution project following the election of the first metro mayor, the school seeks to develop closer partnerships with our industry partners and be a beacon in the developing world of health and society.
“The name change will also make us more recognisable in our international collaborations and ensure that we are the school of choice for applicants seeking the best quality education in health and social care.”
