About the programme

The Adult Nursing Higher Level Apprenticeship is the ideal for Healthcare Assistants and other NHS support workers who want to become a registered nurse.

Our primary goal is to see you become an excellent adult nurse, who has a sound and current knowledge of issues and conditions affecting patients across a wide range of practice settings.

You’ll be supported closely throughout your apprenticeship so that you step into a role as an adult nurse who can confidently make a difference to other peoples’ lives when it matters.

The majority of the programme will take place at your place of employment, however you will also spend at least 20% of time away from the workplace studying at our Barrow-in-Furness or Lancaster campus.

About the apprentice

This course would suit support workers in healthcare who are recognised as having the potential to progress in academic study. Apprentices will have a professional attitude and value base, and will have shown the potential for managing themselves and other staff within challenging situations.

The ideal candidate will be working at least 30 hours a week, and committed to studying above their contracted hours at levels 4 and 5. They will be able to attend university one day per week, or alternatively for weekly blocks of study, supported with extensive work-based learning.
