Campus building

King's is the 'fun' university of London. We're slap bang in the middle of the world's best city, making us a rather big deal. Our five campuses are filled with academically driven, sports loving, volunteering and sociable students, with an active Students' Union who proudly promotes diversity, equality and fairness. Desmond Tutu, Florence Nightingale and John Keats all studied at King's.

Graduates who are nursing and midwifery professionals


Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
19,890 nursing qualifications were awarded in 2015, making it much the most popular degree in the country. Despite that, we have a serious shortage of nurses - estimates suggest that we're over 20,000 nurses short - that is only set to continue. So it's no surprise to see that the very large majority of nursing graduates go on to become nurses, and that starting salaries are pretty competitive. There are lots of different specialties to choose from (including midwifery), and the most common by far is adult nursing, but the typical end result for graduates is the same — they go on to become nurses (or midwives). That’s not to say that you can’t do anything else. Some nursing graduates get other jobs - usually, but not always, in health or caring professions, or management, and with nurses in such demand, there are always going to be options for you. Do be aware that even this doesn't necessarily guarantee you can get the exact nursing job you want exactly where you want though - some flexibility in type of job and location will still help your career.
