Bessie's Story

Use the opportunity to learn and grow

In 2016 I started as a Band 3, before progressing onto a Band 4 Associate Practitioner through the training programme. I was then able to apply and undertake my Nursing Degree Apprenticeship through EPUT and I am now 4 months from completion.

Throughout my Nursing Degree Apprentice (BSc Adult Nursing) I have been supported by all staff who have actively encouraged me with my training and education.
