The Isle of Wight NHS Trust is excited to be able to offer the opportunity for caring, compassionate and highly motivated individuals to undertake a Nursing Associate Higher Apprenticeship in collaboration with the Open University.

There will be a number of Nursing Associate Higher Apprenticeships available across our Trust commencing in October 2021.

The duration of the course is 2 years and is a balance of theory and practice delivered through a combination of practice-based learning and distance learning.

You will be employed as a Nursing Associate Apprentice for 37.5 hours per week and have a home base within a designated clinical area. You will be rostered for 22.5 hours per week clinical practice, undertaking a variety of clinical placements across all fields of nursing together with 15 hours per week academic study. It is this combination for clinical practice and theoretical modules during the apprenticeship that will meet the requirements of the Nursing Associate programme.
