You don’t have to have a university degree to become part of our nursing family. Nor does a career in nursing have to start straight from school. Many of our nursing family started on our apprentice scheme, while others returned to practice later in life.
Our Northumbria Way offers six routes into nursing or a career in care:
● Health apprentices
● Care certificate
● Trainee Nursing Associates
● Student nursing
● Return to practice
● Preceptorship Programme
Whichever route you take, we offer a unique development structure, giving you opportunities to develop clinical skills, leadership, and personal development.
Please download the PDF FACT FILE ‘Nursing at Northumbria’ which gives full details of each of the seven entry routes into nursing in our organisation, to decide which is the right one for you.
