 “Coming into nursing after my degree in English Literature felt a bit daunting at first, as they’re two very different worlds; however I quickly found that a lot of the skills and academic techniques I learnt were transferable. Nursing, like any degree, is largely about critical thinking, so the ability to question and think around subjects is vital both in university and out in practice.” 

Olly Hunt, Adult Nursing BSc(Hons) graduate, 2017.

Apply now  and you could start your nursing career with us on the 29th January 2018.
