We work closely with universities across the region to offer work placements for students studying towards their degree, including Oxford Brookes University:
“We enjoy an excellent working partnership with our local health providers collaborating closely with our clinical colleagues to plan and deliver your programme of learning.
This means that you can gain experience in community and acute placement settings that have national and international reputations for innovation and quality of care.
You will undertake six placements during your degree.
Students will work alongside their mentor and are required to work both day and night shifts, according to the shift pattern used within the practice setting.
This allows the student to experience care as it is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This is in accordance with NMC (2010) standards for pre-registration nursing education.
We offer a range of support mechanisms within both the University and the placement area.
While on placement, you will be supported by a named member of staff from the placement known as a mentor, as well as a link lecturer from the University.”
