A Guide To Nursing Apprenticeships
|Introduction To Nursing Apprenticeships|
Apprenticeships have been around for hundreds of years across many different trades and professions. Now, in the 21st Century, there is more choice than ever before for those of you who don’t want to go on to full time study at university after finishing school, which can only be great news, can’t it. In September 2017, Degree Apprenticeships got a new addition to their list: Nursing Degree Apprenticeships.
In the past, if you wanted to do training to become a nurse, the route would be via a university nursing degree with built in sections of on the job training. Students would receive a bursary to help cover the costs of this but the government made the decision to bring the nursing degree in line with other courses; this means those doing a nursing degree now need to apply for means tested student loans.
Financial difficulties are one of the many reasons young people choose not to go to university and the beauty of Apprenticeships is that you are learning on the job and you also receive a wage. That, coupled with the fact that you will be awarded with a nationally recognised qualification at the end of your training, makes Apprenticeships a really attractive option for lots of you.
These days, depending on the profession or trade, there are degree Apprenticeships and Apprenticeships in Nursing are part of that group where you will do nursing training right up to degree level. So, if you are a compassionate person who has a passion to look after sick and vulnerable people, helping them to cope and get better, nursing careers could be ideal for you.
