Nurs­ing stu­dents on next step of train­ing

Gloucestershire Echo - - BUSINESS -

» THE first stu­dents have started the new higher ap­pren­tice­ship nurs­ing as­so­ciate course at the Uni­ver­sity of Glouces­ter­shire’s Oxstalls cam­pus.

Forty health­care as­sis­tants have en­rolled on the two-year pro­gramme, which will help meet the grow­ing de­mand for a skilled nurs­ing work­force.

The ap­pren­tice­ship of­fers a clear path­way for trainees who want to fur­ther their ca­reer and work to­wards be­com­ing a nurs­ing as­so­ciate.

The course is de­signed to de­velop trainees to work along­side reg­is­tered nurses and health­care as­sis­tants, split­ting their time be­tween learn­ing at uni­ver­sity and main­tain­ing their ca­reer in health­care.

The course will see ap­pren­tices com­plete a di­verse range of clin­i­cal place­ments with a va­ri­ety of Glouces­ter­shire providers.
