We are still taking enquiries for 2014 entry.
Students wishing to apply for Learning Disability B761 and Mental Health B701 branches can do so, as well as for January 2014 starts in Adult B700 and Mental Health B701.
Although we do offer some limited placement opportunities in Nottinghamshire, we have now filled all of our spaces for the January 2014 cohort, so whilst you are welcome to apply for Adult or Mental Health Nursing for January 2014, if offered a place, your placements will be in Leicestershire and Rutland ONLY.
