Our local NHS trusts

We are proud to work with four local NHS trusts that provide placements for our students in a variety of healthcare settings. Many of our graduates also start their careers in these trusts, which offer excellent employment opportunities.

  • Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust
  • George Eliot Hospital
  • South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust
  • University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire

Whichever organisation you start your career with, you will have a 12-month preceptorship programme which supports you in the workplace to transfer your knowledge into everyday practice. Coventry and Warwickshire is a diverse community and our local Trusts welcome diversity in their employees to enhance the support they can provide their patients.

As your career progresses, you could specialise in areas such as theatre nursing or practice nursing, or you could undertake further postgraduate studies to become a more senior nurse, such as a district nurse, health visitor or advanced clinical practitioner. Our local Trusts may provide apprenticeship opportunities for further postgraduate study while you are working with them. There could be future opportunities in management, clinical research or teaching too.

There are over 350 careers that you could follow, but whichever nursing path you choose, you will have a long-term, stable yet exciting career - one in which you’re guaranteed to make a real difference to people’s lives in your community every single day.
