History[edit]

The School was formed in 2008 when the nursing and midwifery college merged with the allied health sciences departments.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery dates its history back over 120 years ago to the schools of St Bartholomew's Hospital and the Royal London Hospital, the former of which began training in 1867,[1] formalised into a School in 1877.[2] These merged in 1994 to become the St Bartholomew School of Nursing & Midwifery. In 1995 the new school was incorporated into City, University of London.[3][4] Both schools have a strong and respected history and have produced many nurse leaders and educators. The school has since been incorporated into the School of Health Sciences.
