Want to be a nurse but not too sure whether university or an apprenticeship is right for you?

Then join this session to find out about how you can start an apprenticeship in the NHS and progress to become a qualified nurse.

Healthcare support workers are an essential part of a health or social care team, providing high quality and compassionate care to individuals. They carry out well-defined routine clinical duties and essential fundamentals of care. HCSWs work in a range of healthcare settings and work with others from both health and social care, reporting to a registered healthcare practitioner.

In this session we will talk through how to become a Healthcare Support Worker, and how to progress to become a registered nurse (if wanted). You’ll hear from practising nurses who have taken this route, as well as Healthcare Support Workers who will talk about their role and answer questions.

This session will be interactive and will help you to understand some of the key skills needed to be a Healthcare Support Worker.

When applying, answer the following questions

  • Passion: What cause(s) are you passionate about? Please also explain why.
  • What would you consider a “great day” at work?
  • What skills do you think you need to be a nurse?
