About the course

The Nursing Associate is a new role within healthcare designed to bridge the gap between Healthcare Assistant and Registered Nurse.

This course is for healthcare workers currently working as a healthcare assistant supporting registered nurses caring for patients and service users.

As a Nursing Associate you will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and behaviours relevant to employment as a Nursing Associate, working to a nationally recognised code of conduct.

The course meets the requirements of the national Nursing Associate Training programme curriculum, and provides an outcome-based course of academic and work-based learning that will help you to develop the wide-ranging skills and capabilities required for this new role.

During the course you will attend a range of practice settings alongside your employment in a healthcare setting and attend university for the equivalent of a day a week. Throughout the course you will be supported by both a practice mentor and a personal academic tutor.


Why choose this course?

  • Learn through a combination of lectures/seminars, guided learning and work-based learning.
  • Study a practice-led and competency-based curriculum based upon the NHS Constitution and its values, developed by experienced nurses and delivered in partnership with local employers and services.
  • Develop your scope of practice enabling you to play an active part in improving service users’ and patients’ experiences of healthcare
  • Build on your potential throughout this two-year course through the strong emphasis on work-based learning where you will be supported by a personal academic tutor and practice-based tutor to assist and enhance your development as a Nursing Associate.
  • On completion of the foundation degree you will be eligible to apply for Nursing Associate posts or year 2 entry to one of our BSc (Hons) registered nursing courses (if you also meet the NMC entry requirement).

How will I be assessed?

The course assessment strategy is closely aligned to the teaching and learning strategy which is designed to have: immediate relevance to practice; draw on expertise-by-experience; foster active learning and be leaner-centred in approach. A distinct feature of the course is the range of assessment tasks, including those that allow you to undertake workplace relevant assessments that can have an immediate impact in practice. Examples include: written assignments ranging from reflective pieces to academic essays culminating in a project at Foundation degree level, assessed practice within your workplace; computer based examinations and oral presentations.

Your use of professional and theoretical literature will increase in complexity, depth and breadth as you progress through the course. In the first year, you will be expected to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the evidence-based literature and apply this to practice. In contrast, the second year will demand deeper analysis and evaluation of the literature and its applications. For example, you will develop your ability to study and practice more independently. You will be expected to identify a subject that particularly interests you based upon the NHS values, and propose a service improvement project supported by appropriate.
