The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care at King’s, is an internationally renowned centre for the delivery of cutting-edge education, training and research.

We teach our students to care for people in the most effective way possible and prepare them for success anywhere in the world. Alongside academic ability, our students are caring, compassionate, competent in practice and committed to excellence.
Our research tackles the big questions that impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and populations. We are home to the Cicely Saunders Institute, the world’s first purpose-built Institute for Palliative Care and Rehabilitation. The institute brings clinical and academic teams together to discover, evaluate and translate solutions to make high-quality palliative care available to everyone who needs it.
Florence Nightingale pioneered the use of evidence and data to achieve nursing excellence and her legacy is known throughout the world. In the spirit of Nightingale’s vision, we’re committed to delivering world-class education underpinned by best practices in nursing and midwifery on an international scale. Through our collaboration with the Nanjing Health School in China and our partnership with the Ngee Ann Academy in Singapore, we’re establishing a globally connected network of education, research and healthcare practitioners.
