This apprenticeship course has been designed to provide the opportunity to study whilst being employed in adult healthcare services. During this apprenticeship you’ll get the opportunity to learn in a supportive, forward-thinking and well-connected environment, where you’ll explore all aspects of adult nursing, from the fundamentals of providing care to more advanced topics such as complex needs, and leadership and management.
- Supported by a team who really understand what it’s like to be an adult nurse, you’ll learn through lectures, workshops, seminars, group work, simulation and role play.
- In our fully equipped simulated ward, you’ll have the opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice in a safe environment using our patient simulators.
- You’ll undertake clinical placements throughout the course in a variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, in the community, as well as voluntary and private sectors.
- You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group.
- You’ll also learn how to respond to the physical, cognitive and mental health care needs of all patients and service users across their lifespan.
In line with the apprenticeship model, the course is designed to support a training in practice approach. Whilst undertaking the course you’ll remain employed by your host organisation and may spend 20% of your time in your current workplace. The remaining 80% will be spent at the University undertaking theory work and clinical placements. The course is designed to be progressively demanding and once qualified you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and work as a Registered Nurse for Adults.
