Who is it for?
Please note this course is subject to approval.
This course is specifically designed for those aged 16-19 who want to become adult nurses. You will need to have a genuine interest in caring for people and the desire to make a difference in their lives. This is a rewarding career with many opportunities. You will work alongside nurses whilst on placement in NHS settings to learn about the role and to develop the skills required.
You will need to have a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above, to include English, Maths and Science. You must be positive, dedicated, and enthusiastic and have excellent communication skills. You will also need to apply for a DBS.
Please Note - If you are interested in other strands of nursing, such as children’s nursing, mental health, midwifery or paramedic science, you should choose Health & Social Care Diploma. This pathway has been developed to help meet the national shortage of adult nurses.
What does the course involve?

• Human lifespan development
• Working in health & social care

You will also have the opportunity to study extra courses, such as First Aid and the Care Certificate, all of which make you highly employable.
How is the course assessed?
You will build a portfolio of evidence over the two years including written assignments, presentations, practical assessments, reflective accounts and placement reports and competencies checklists. You will also have four externally assessed exams. You will be assessed during placement and have a set of competencies to sign off.
