The Nursing Associate is a new role within healthcare designed to bridge the gap between Healthcare Assistant and Registered Nurse.
This course is for healthcare workers currently working as a healthcare assistant supporting registered nurses caring for patients and service users.
As a Nursing Associate you will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and behaviours relevant to employment as a Nursing Associate, working to a nationally recognised code of conduct.
The course meets the requirements of the national Nursing Associate Training programme curriculum, and provides an outcome-based course of academic and work-based learning that will help you to develop the wide-ranging skills and capabilities required for this new role.
During the course you will attend a range of practice settings alongside your employment in a healthcare setting and attend university for the equivalent of a day a week. Throughout the course you will be supported by both a practice mentor and a personal academic tutor.
