Course detail

The Nursing Associate Higher Apprenticeship at UCW builds upon our proven track record in delivering Foundation Degrees in Health and Social Care and Integrated Mental Health and Social Care in partnership with UWE Bristol.

Our students and graduates are employed in a range of settings, from NHS trusts to smaller health and social care providers, and our brilliant lecturing team are all experienced in teaching students who work in demanding roles alongside their studies.

Our healthcare students and apprentices are taught at the modern University Centre in our Winter Gardens building on Weston seafront, meaning they have access to great new facilities and a dedicated higher education library, with practical studies sometimes taking place at our multimillion-pound Health and Active Living Skills Centre.

The facility, which is the first of its kind in the region and was opened in 2019 at our Loxton Campus, includes a fully-equipped simulation ward with high-tech patient mannequins, a therapy room and brilliant indoor and outdoor sport and exercise facilities.

Nursing Associate apprentices combine their studies with work-based learning in areas including clinical practice, clinical observations and supporting patients and their loved ones.

The classroom-based elements of the course cover key knowledge and skills in areas including safety and quality, anatomy and physiology, communication, medicines management, integrated care, clinical practice, teamwork and promoting good health.

Apprentices are just like any other students at UCW – meaning they have access to all of the support and guidance we offer at no additional expense.
