Nursing & Professional Practice: Welcome

A guide to print and electronic resources for students at the University of Derby on Nursing & Professional Practice programmes of study.

Suggest a book

Help your Library grow its book collection - suggest a book for purchase!

Is there a particular book we don't have in stock that you feel would be a useful addition to the collection - not just for you, but for fellow students as well?  We can't guarantee we'll always get what you request but we will consider every title put through.

If you would like to request a book to be purchased by the Library fill out the form on the Books For You page and we'll take it from there!

Don't keep us guessing - let us know!


This is your guide to finding and using the best Library resources for Nursing & Professional Practice.

CRH Library

If you are a nursing student at the University of Derby and based at our Chesterfield site then you also have access to the Library in the Education Centre at Chesterfield Royal Hospital which will provide you with access to books, print journals, and the internet  there. After registering with the library you can use their computers to log in to UDo and from there get access to the online books and journals that the University has bought. (You can also access all of this material from home.)

You can get information about opening hours, resources and borrowing via the website: Chesterfield Royal Hospital Library
