The purpose-built Faculty of Health Studies building represents a £10 million investment in health at Bradford.
The intention is to facilitate your development by introducing you to the fundamental knowledge and skills centred on core and field subjects required to meet the health needs of all patient/client groups, whilst ensuring you develop the specific in-depth knowledge and skills to meet the complex health needs of people from your chosen field of practice.
The University of Bradford and Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust have joined together to offer a Harrogate Pathway with the aim to recruit locally and therefore develop a sustainable workforce.
This pathway may be of interest to local people with commitments in the area, especially more mature applicants with dependants who may find traveling further afield difficult.
By providing all but one of the practice placements within the Trust we are offering a long term relationship to students.
This is also reflected within our commitment agreement.
You may also be allocated an associate mentor depending upon the placement.
Mentors are there to support and educate you during your practice placement, helping you to integrate the theoretical knowledge gained into effective/ appropriate practice.Spanning the rural Yorkshire Dales to inner city districts, no other area of the UK offers the rich diversity of clinical experience available through the University and its partner Trusts.Throughout your studies you will be taught by a team of professional nurses supported by other staff at the Faculty of Health Studies, and have access to a suite of purpose-built practice simulation suites, which allow you to be taught and to practise your core clinical skills, from bed making, moving patients and taking blood pressure to giving injections, ward rounds and dispensing medication, and simulation of the seriously ill person using our interactive models.The pathway is advantageous to the Trust as newly registered practitioners who have followed the pathway will be familiar with the Trust policies and processes as well as having developed working relationships with existing staff.We now accept NVQ Level 3 in a healthcare related discipline - you must be currently working as a healthcare assistant with 2 years’ work experience.The three-year full-time degree in Nursing leads to a professional nursing qualification and eligibility to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
