From education to employment

Apprenticeship standard: registered nurse degree apprenticeship approved for delivery

The Institute for Apprenticeships today (9 May) approved the Registered Nurse Degree (level 6) Apprenticeship standard which describes the job role that an apprentice will be doing and the skills required of them by the nursing sector.

The document is relevant to employers wanting to recruit an apprentice and training organisations working with employers to make the apprenticeships available. The approved standard is ready to use and outlines the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of the apprentice and the job they will need to be able to do by the time they have completed their apprenticeship..
