Nurse Training

Ipswich Hospital works in partnership with University Campus Suffolk to train student nurses and midwives. From September 2010 UCS will only offer degree level nurse training.

Information about nursing or midwifery careers can be found at www.nhscareers.nhs.uk Applicants apply via UCAS to the university.

Information about funding, grants and bursaries can be found at nextstep.direct.gov.uk

As part of the programme students spend 50% of time in practice settings this is further divided between acute and community services. Students in practice are supported by a mentor who is a registered professional and able to teach, guide and assess clinical skills. Ipswich also has clinical practice facilitators who oversee all nursing students offering support to them and their mentors.
