As a nursing associate, you’ll deliver hands-on care to patients. You’ll work alongside healthcare support workers (holding a care certificate) and fully qualified registered nurses, bridging the existing gap between the two roles.
Through a combination of theoretical learning and practice placements, you’ll develop a wide range of specialist and transferable clinical, care and interpersonal skills across all four fields of nursing. Practice placements will also give you the opportunity to gain a wide range of experiences through exposure to different health and care settings.
Nursing associates will be a key part of the multi-disciplinary workforce that’s needed to respond to the future needs of the public and patients.
