New course sees trainee nurses coming to Warwickshire

Stratford Editorial 11th Jul, 2017   0

TRAINEE nurses embarking on a new course to transform healthcare will be taking on roles within South Warwickshire Foundation Trust.

Coventry University has launched a ‘nursing association’ course which aims to bridge the gap between healthcare assistants and registered nurses.

Over the next two years 29 trainees will spend one day at the university and the rest of the time working at hospitals, health or social care organisations or in the community.

Some of the positions will be within SWFT – which runs Leamington, Warwick, Stratford and Shipston hospitals.

Trust director of nursing Helen Lancaster said: “These new roles, supported by our nursing staff and academic partners, will provide people with a fantastic opportunity to enter and progress in a rewarding career in nursing.”
