Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeships Information Event

Northumbria University


Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeships Information Event (18-month programme January 2019 intake)

New Knowledge. New Skills. New Thinking.

Following the launch of the first ever nursing degree 18-month programme in September 2018, we are delighted to welcome you to an event on 2 October to find out more about the next intake for this programme.

Northumbria University is the only institute in the country with Nursing and Midwifery Council approval to deliver this qualification over 18 months rather than the standard two to four years. The programme can be covered in this shorter time-frame as it is aimed at those who already hold a relevant level 5 Foundation Degree Healthcare qualification and relevant ward experience wishing to qualify as a Registered Nurse.

Apprentice nurses on the programme are employed as Assistant Practitioners within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. They will work across the Freeman Hospital or Royal Victoria Infirmary whilst embarking on our innovative degree programme that has been created to fit the needs of the Trust.

Join us for a briefing event to learn more about the Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship programme for the January 2019 intake of students.

This event is open to all employers who wish to place existing staff on this programme as well as potential participants who hold the Foundation Degree level 5 qualification and relevant practical experience.

Date: 2 October 2018

Venue: Coach Lane Campus West, Newcastle
