The University of Plymouth is opening an additional new school of nursing in Exeter, delivering the BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult) programme.
The University is welcoming applications for September 2017 for the new school, based in the city of Exeter, which is well served by public transport links and is easily accessible by car.
The University of Plymouth has a long history in educating health professionals, having run a Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) accredited adult nursing programme for more than 20 years. The new school in Exeter will deliver the same high-quality curriculum as taught at both Plymouth and Truro by the University.
The additional school in Exeter will enable more students to access the same high-quality teaching much closer to home and our placement partners in the local trusts are very keen to recruit local student nurses for their Band 5 staff nurse posts when they qualify. Educating more students locally will be of great benefit to those trusts in future years and, of course, to the students themselves - currently 98 per cent of our graduating cohort find work within six months of graduation, at an NHS Band 5 (present salary band: £21,909 - £28,462) in the majority of cases.
