More than 130 new nursing students have begun their studies at the University of Worcester.
The new students, 95 of which are on the adult nursing pathway, 31 on the mental health nursing pathway and 12 on the child nursing pathway, have embarked on the University’s popular three-year BSc (Hons) programme.
Robert Dudley, Head of Pre-Registration Nursing, said: “We are delighted to welcome the latest group of nurses. We pride ourselves in providing the highest standard of education, which supports and encourages students to achieve their full potential.
“Worcester graduates are particularly sought-after; our employment rate is 100%. Many choose to stay in the area, taking advantage of our strong links with the NHS and other health care organisations.”
The University’s first degree nursing programme scored a full 100% satisfaction rating in the National Student Survey, putting it at the top in the Country.
It comes after the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) rated the University of Worcester’s training as ‘good’ in all five areas of its Annual Monitoring Review.
Helen Blanchard, Chief Nursing Officer at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “I am delighted that so many students choose Worcestershire to under take their education, which underlines the quality of both the theoretical preparation at the University and the practical experience gained within the county’s hospitals and other healthcare settings.”
There are still places available to study nursing at the University of Worcester, starting in February. For more information contact Admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01905 855111.
