Registered Nursing Degree Apprenticeship in Adult and Child Nursing

We are committed to developing the skills and knowledge of healthcare support workers.

Our healthcare support workers are now able to access training to become a registered nurse via an apprenticeship programme. The Registered Nursing Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) programme in Adult

and Child Nursing is currently provided in partnership with BPP University.

The BPP’s RNDA supports employers to develop healthcare support workers towards registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as adult and children’s nurses.

The RNDA programme is a balance of theory and practice delivered through a combination of practice-based learning, face-to-face learning and distance learning. It develops effective evidence-based practice, underpins knowledge in an inter-professional and interdisciplinary environment and addresses the NMC requirements for entry to the nursing professional register.

The course runs over four years to enable healthcare support workers to develop and progress to achieve a nursing degree. As with other NMC approved pre-registration nursing degrees, apprentices undertake a minimum of 2,300 hours of theoretical and 2,300 hours of practice learning. Because apprentices study flexibly alongside work, newly-acquired knowledge and skills can be put into practice, for the positive benefit of patients and service users.
