The Nursing Higher Level Apprenticeship is ideal for Healthcare Assistants, Clinical Support Workers, and other NHS support workers who want to become a registered nurse. All four fields of nursing are available; adult, child, mental health and learning disability.
Our primary goal is to see students become excellent registered nurses, who have a sound and current knowledge of issues and conditions affecting patients across a wide range of practice settings.
We support students closely throughout the apprenticeship meaning that on completion of the programme students step into a role as a registered nurse and can confidently make a difference to other people's lives when it matters.
We can also offer top up courses between 20 and 24 months for qualified Nursing Associates and Assistant Practitioners (dependent on qualification and experience). All four fields of nursing are available.
On this course you will...
- Develop skills that allow you to practice as a confident and competent nurse and enjoy a rewarding career in the area of nursing that excites you.
- Learn and work alongside all fields of nursing and recognise the contribution of each other's expertise.
- Benefit from our friendly team with a wealth of collective experience to share with you and support you.
- Utilise modern facilities to enhance your clinical skill development and acquisition.
