Nursing Apprenticeships announced

The launch of a new nursing degree apprenticeship has been announced by Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State for Health, with the first apprentice nurses possibly working on wards from September. The government said that once the programme is established, up to 1000 apprentice nurses could join the NHS each year. Aspiring nurses will start the Apprenticeship at different stages, depending on their qualifications and experience, though the course will not require GCSE English and Maths. Before they start training, Apprentices will have their numeracy and literacy skills assessed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council Approved Education Institution to ensure they meet a minimum of Level two (GCSE equivalent).
