The 2018/19 academic year does not begin until September 2018. Unlike students applying to study nursing full time at university, nurse degree apprentices do not apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service system therefore we are unable to say how many nurse degree apprentices will be studying in the forthcoming academic year.

Employers are responsible for developing workforce plans that respond to their own workforce development and skills mix needs, therefore the numbers of nurse degree apprentices that employers choose to recruit and train over the forthcoming academic year will depend on their individual workforce planning requirements.
