Nursing Open Evening

Taunton campus, Wellington Road, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 5AX

Tuesday 16 November 2021 6pm - 7pm

We’re delighted to be opening our doors for our first Nursing Open Evening, aimed at anyone who is interested in finding out about the new nurse training progression routes and pathways available right here in Somerset.

University Centre Somerset has recently received approval from the Nursing & Midwifery Council to deliver full-time Nursing degrees and Nursing Degree Apprenticeships at its Taunton campus from September 2022. This is a hugely exciting addition to our existing nurse training offer that includes the new Nursing T Level for school leavers, and a Nursing & Midwifery Access to HE Diploma for adults. Both programmes are an ideal precursor to the new degrees.

During this Open Evening you will have the opportunity to:

  • Find out about the skills agenda in relation to nursing and how UCS and our partners have developed nurse training to meet the needs of the local healthcare sector.
  • Hear from the NHS about what to expect from each training pathway and how the placements work.
  • Understand more about what training at UCS will entail and the routes you can take.
  • Tour the training facilities, including the brand-new Clinical Skills & Simulation Suite.
  • Meet the staff and ask your questions.

Registration for this event is essential. Please book your place using the ‘register’ button above.

If you are unable to attend but would like to receive regular updates about the nurse training opportunities in Somerset, please complete the form here.
