Building upon the success of our previous programmes, Spire Healthcare is delighted to recruit our next intake of Nurse Apprentices. If you've ever dreamt of being a nurse, an apprenticeship is an incredible way for you to gain all the skills, knowledge and experience required to become a fully qualified registered nurse. You can earn while you learn, graduating with a BsC in Adult Nursing.
Underpinned by the NMC, during your Apprenticeship you will be able to develop practical and theoretical skills both on and off the job. Throughout your training you will get to experience placements in a wide range of nursing settings, both inside and outside of Spire, such as wards, outpatients, operating theatres, hospices and A&E, and be fully supported by our experienced and friendly clinicians, plus a dedicated learning team.
An exciting curriculum, developed by the University of Sunderland, means you will study remotely for the 4 year programme.
Our Apprentices are fully supported professionally and academically to achieve the Nursing Degree, alongside earning a competitive salary, complimented with an excellent benefits package that you would expect from a leading national employer.
