Nursing Associate

The Nursing Associate programme is suitable for the development of existing healthcare support workers, who have demonstrated the capabilities and commitment to develop towards a nursing role. As the apprentices study flexibly alongside work, they will put their newly acquired knowledge and skills into practice immediately, and become a key part of the multi-disciplinary workforce that is needed to respond to the future healthcare needs of the public and patients.

The Nursing Associate Apprenticeship is a two-year programme which aims to provide experience in alternative settings in order to gain wider practice experience through facilitated work-based learning and assessment. Successful apprentices will gain a Level 5 Nursing Associate foundation degree (FDSc) from Buckinghamshire New University.

This course is based at our Uxbridge Campus in West London. A central part of the Nursing Associate Apprenticeship involves making use of our state-of-the-art simulation suites – where your apprentices can practise and hone their skills in realistic clinical environments.
