Sir David Behan, Chair, Health Education England joined celebrations to mark the achievements of 17 students who are among the first in the country to complete a ground-breaking nursing apprenticeship degree scheme.
The students from Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) are all former healthcare support workers. They undertook a mixture of on-the-job training the wards at Addenbrooke’s hospital and studies at Anglia Ruskin University to earn their BSc (Hons) Nursing Degrees over four years.
Sir David Said:
I would like to congratulate the students on their hard work and dedication which has seen a number of them become registered nurses and others begin their journey to becoming a registered nurse. This is fantastic news not only for the Trust who have gained 17 new nurses, but more importantly for the patients they care for.
