INTRODUCING THIS EXCITING ENRICHMENT

The Pre-Nursing programme is open to all students who wish to pursue a career in any field of nursing, such as:

  • Adult Nursing
  • Paediatric Nursing
  • Mental Health Nursing
  • Learning Disability Nursing

During the programme, students will be educated on the different nursing fields, and which is the most suited to their personal skills and attributes. This will be combined with external visits to university providers to explore their clinical suites, as well as guest speakers to deliver bespoke talks on UCAS applications, personal statement writing and how to be fully prepared for interviews.  

Sessions will be tailored to first year and second year students to ensure appropriate support is given depending on where you are with your application process.  

HOW OFTEN DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?

This enrichment takes place across two lunchtimes each half term.

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF IT?

You will get an initial education on the variety of nursing degrees available, bespoke UCAS support when applying to nursing degrees and interview support including practice interviews. You will also get the opportunity to hear from external speakers and have visits to clinical settings.

IS THERE A COST OR ANY REQUIRED RESOURCES?

This enrichment is free.

My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.

The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.

I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.

I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
