The Nursing industry is continuing to grow in response to the ever growing need for new nursing staff, especially in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
As a college, we offer Nursing at a level 6 qualification to prepare you for employment within this industry or progression to further study.
We have excellent links with local employers and related organisations, and we use these relationships to benefit our students by bringing in knowledgeable speakers from the industry. Our previous Nursing students have received sessions from the Royal College of Nursing Workshops, Tommy Whitelaw Dementia Awareness and SWAP East.
As a college, we know that not all learning takes place within a classroom or college setting. We take our students out to various different organisations and settings, with previous students visiting the Surgeons Hall in Edinburgh, The Future Equipped Project and a trip to Annecy France as part of the Erasmus + Programme.
Many of our Nursing students also complete a placement to allow them to build the skills and experience needed to excel in their future career. Previous students have had the opportunity for work placements within the sector, many of who are now in permanent employment following their course.
