News: Access to Nursing courses help our students to join the NHS
There has never been a better time to consider a career in healthcare and an access course can help you get there – even if you don’t currently have the necessary qualifications!
Following the pandemic and the extra strains placed on the nursing profession over the past couple of years, there is now a larger shortage of nurses than there ever has been before. Nurses are needed to enter the health profession to help the NHS recover from the global coronavirus pandemic. There has never been a better time to consider a career in healthcare and an Access course can help you get there – even if you don’t currently have the necessary qualifications!
If you’re unsure of what an access course is, access courses are specifically designed for adults aged 19+ who are returning to education who want to study for a university-level course, but don’t have the necessary qualifications. Our access courses are a fast-track route to degree-level study and are tailored to specific careers like nursing.
Did you know?
- There is a global shortage of over 6 million nursing jobs?
- In the UK over 50,000 new nurses will be needed by 2025 to help the NHS to fully recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
How much will it cost?
Funding for our Access to Nursing courses is possibly available through an Advanced Learner Loan and if you progress on to university following studying with us, then you won’t need to repay your tuition fee for the Access course.
Some of our Access students shared:
