Nursing and Midwifery

Is there a foundation course for Nursing and midwifery?

Unfortunately, there are no Nursing and Midwifery foundation courses, however, the Fast-Track to Nursing and Midwifery is an option for applicants with health and social qualifications at level 2, or who have relevant experience that can be evidenced by a portfolio.

The Fast-track to Nursing and Midwifery is a short course that enables you to progress to the first year of a Nursing or Midwifery degree, and so it is much shorter, but very similar to a 'foundation' degree. More details of the Fast Track to Nursing and Midwifery course can be found on the course page.

The Nursing Associate Foundation Degree is also available, which is a 2-year programme that allows you to obtain a career as a Nursing Associate Band 4 and register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) on successful completion. Please see the Nursing Associate course page for more details.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Nursing and Midwifery Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching here.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
