Trainee Nursing Associate – April 17 Cohort Graduate

The School of Nursing and Midwifery is pleased to inform everyone of the success of our 2 pilot cohorts of the new Nursing Associates. We worked in partnership with both Kirklees/Calderdale and Barnsley/Rotherham who both had bids accepted for the second wave pilots funded by Health Education England. all our completing students from both cohorts not only attained their foundation degree but also are all now registrants of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
As for all pilots the route was not always smooth and we navigated many changes along the way but with strong partnership working we supported the students to a fruitful achievement. These pilots have lead to the university running more cohorts and working with more local partners. This has not only lead to stronger working relationships with local health providers but also our pathway in to apprenticeships.
