I'm not a Registered Nurse
The apprenticeship is an alternative route to gaining a nursing degree. What makes it an apprenticeship is the regular monitoring by the university, employer and apprentice about their progress and performance.
The entry requirements are exactly the same as a nursing degree at Derby – 112 UCAS tariff points plus Five GCSEs at Grade C or above, including Maths, English and Science. The apprenticeship can be studied full-time (3 years) or part-time (likely to be 4 years). There are currently no cost to the apprentice for course fees.
You must be employed for the duration of your apprenticeship and will be paid as part of the apprenticeship, funded by the new apprenticeship levy however the amount of salary per year has not been agreed. You will still need to undertake all of the normal placements as expected on the Nursing degree and will therefore spend time away from your host environment. If completing the apprenticeship part time, you will also spend time in a Heal Care Assistant role.
