What is a degree apprenticeship?
A degree apprenticeship enables you to gain a degree whilst being employed. There are no tuition fees for degree apprenticeships with all costs met by your employer.
About the programme
The nursing associate role is a highly trained support role to deliver safe, effective and responsive, person centred nursing care in and across a wide range of health and care settings, ranging from pre life to end of life. This programme will prepare you by ensuring you have the necessary knowledge, clinical skills, attitudes and behaviours to take on this new and innovative role.
On successful completion, you will be able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. You can also progress onto a BSc Nursing programme, the Nursing Degree Apprenticeship programme or a top-up degree in health and social care.
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 Carlisle - Fusehill Street or Lancaster campus, or our site in Barrow-in-Furness.
