SCHOOL OF NURSING

Town Investment Plan theme: Innovative, Growing Business and Skilled Workforce

This project will deliver high quality nursing training facilities at the college campus. The college will deliver the Level 5 (foundation degree equivalent) Associate Nursing Apprenticeship to support the future workforce needs of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The project will include the provision of two high-quality teaching spaces, refurbished into a hospital ward with two beds and equipment, to give students near real-world experience of a clinical setting, and a simulator suite with two beds and clinical simulator dummies to present students with challenging situations. Scenarios from the simulator suite will be broadcast into larger classrooms so that a larger body of students can learn from the experience.

The first cohort of students will be starting in January at Anglia Ruskin University’s Peterborough site and will move into the new school later in the spring when accreditation is confirmed from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The School of Nursing received accelerated Town Deal funding in 2020.

The project is led by the College of West Anglia working with the Skills Working Group.
