Nurses return to train in Scarborough after 23 years
The first trainee nurses to be based in Scarborough in 23 years have officially begun their degrees. CU Scarborough has welcomed the first cohort of students to its BSc Adult Nursing degree.
The institute is the only provider of nursing training on the Yorkshire Coast, and aims to address the shortage of qualified nurses and healthcare workers across the area.
The course, which has been expanded to cope with high demand, will include 50% theory and 50% practical work through a number of placements.
Emily Harrison, Course Leader in nursing at CU Scarborough, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome our very first nursing students to CU Scarborough.
“It is very positive that we have already been able to expand the number of places on the course, further addressing the skills shortages in the area at a time when we are in desperate need of more nurses.
“All of our students are enthusiastic about developing a career in the healthcare profession,and we look forward to working with healthcare partners to deliver the course and support the trainees as they develop their skills and knowledge.”
