Applications now open for sponsored nursing associate programme

Earlier this year, Imperial College Healthcare launched a sponsored nursing associate programme in partnership with Buckinghamshire New University, University of East London and The Open University. The programme aims to give members of our local communities the opportunity to begin a nursing career at the Trust – while developing our nursing workforce. 

Successful applicants will undertake a full time, undergraduate two-year nursing associate programme and benefit from:

  • the opportunity to undertake their nursing associate placements at one of our hospitals with dedicated support from our nursing education team, as well as placements with associated community partners 
  • fully-funded second year tuition fees
  • a guaranteed offer of a registered nursing associate post at one of our hospitals when they complete the programme
  • the opportunity to work on our bank as a healthcare support worker during the programme

Applications are now open to study with the Open University, starting February 2022 – the closing date for applications is 30th November.

All three universities are also recruiting for their programmes starting autumn 2022.
