Good luck to all our third year UWS Adult Nursing students at Paisley (and all our other third years heading off Campuses) who had their final day all together on the 5th. of December 2017.

Now they are all off out on placement – Hope they are still looking festive although that’s maybe a bit harder in a uniform.

Dental Team

The School was delighted last month to announce the approval of the BSc Dental Nursing programme. This is a collaborative validated programme undertaken in partnership with New College Lanarkshire (NCL) and will commence in September 2017, delivered at the Coatbridge Campus of NCL.

This is an exciting development for the school as the new programme is the first degree programme in dental nursing in the UK and the first such collaborative delivery model with a local college undertaken within the school.

Our thanks go to Mhairi Kidd, Jennifer Lowe (NCL), Julie Orr,  Fiona Everett and Hazel Shepherd and to Gordon Hunt for acting as chair for this event.
