This Foundation Degree for Nursing Associates is a two year apprenticeship programme validated by De Montfort University and delivered at the Leicestershire School of Nursing Associates, based at Glenfield Hospital.
Nursing is an evolving profession and the Nursing Associate role forms an integral part of the nursing family. The Nursing Associate will be part of a team around the patient and will provide an exciting opportunity for those individuals who may want to progress their careers in the field of health and social care.
This programme of study focusses on developing individuals to meet the healthcare needs of patients and service users across a range of acute, primary and community health and social care settings.
Whilst on this programme of study, trainee Nursing Associates will be prepared to provide high quality, holistic, person-centred care to individuals under the leadership and direction of a level one registered nurse. You will be trained to employ professional judgement to ensure that the degree of autonomy you exercise is always within the parameters of your scope of practice.
You will be equipped with: professional values and behaviours; breadth of knowledge and understanding and a flexible, portable skillset which will enable you to serve local health populations in a wide range of health and care settings.
You will also develop strong, positive and therapeutic working relationships between professional partners, patients, families and carers.
