Working as a nurse is a challenging but rewarding career choice that requires commitment, intellectual ability, compassion, teamwork and a desire to care for others. This programme allows apprentices to qualify for registered status as a Child, Adult or Mental Health nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Over the three-year programme, apprentices will learn alongside other undergraduate nursing students, and develop and enhance the knowledge, skills and values required to meet the Future Nurse: Standards of Proficiency for Registered Nurses (Nursing and Midwifery Council 2018).
The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution - respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients - are embedded in our curriculum.
We will support apprentices in becoming a caring and compassionate professional who delivers skilled, evidence-based care in partnership with patients, families and communities. Our focus on interdisciplinary enriches apprentices experience whilst preparing them for professional practice.
Applicants who have completed the Nursing Associate Higher Apprenticeship will be considered as per the usual process of admissions for apprentices.
Make sure that you’ve read the FAQs, and that you meet the eligibility criteria, before you submit an application.
