FdSc Nursing Associate
Nursing Associates bridge the gap between healthcare assistants and registered nurses and are an integral part of the nursing family, supporting healthcare teams with their clinical and administrative duties. This course fundamentally supports students to develop their clinical knowledge, skills and professional attributes to be able to support registered nurses across all branches of nursing to help provide high-quality, safe, holistic care to patients and their families in their times of need.
Upon completion of the programme, students will have developed into competent and confident professionals eligible for entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council register as a nursing associate and can work across a range of clinical teams. Successfully completing the programme also gives students the opportunity to undertake further studies to qualify as a registered nurse.
