Nursing Associate

The Nursing Associate Foundation Degree Apprenticeship will allow the trainee to work under the leadership and direction of the Registered Nurse in the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of care. The programme aims to produce compassionate, competent and confident NMC Registered Band 4 Nursing Associates. They will be able to practise safely and effectively within the parameters of practice, demonstrating appropriate values and behaviours in a wide range of health and social care settings.

How will I be assessed?

Completion of the programme and portfolio of proficiencies will enable entry to the NMC register. The End Point Assessment will run alongside the final university exam board and the apprentice will have passed when both the academic and practice requirements have been met and the AEI has declared to the NMC the apprentice’s good character and they are suitable for entry to the NMC register.

Next Step
