The members of the London Healthcare Education Group are proud to be amongst the first to develop nursing associate programmes. Our first graduates are now part of the healthcare workforce, providing evidenced-base care and a vital cross-field perspective as part of the nursing family. Others are using their qualification as a route into registered nurse programmes.

London Healthcare Education Group members continue to support the implementation of the role in partnership with healthcare providers, through CPD and support for work-based learning. The new opportunities for direct-access entry through a UCAS application will open the possibility of working in healthcare as a fully registered nursing associate to a wide range of people.
