Refreshed routes into nursing infographic

Nurses graphic

We have updated our routes into nursing infographic.

It can be difficult to weigh up the different options and to map out a clear pathway for the supply of registered nurses. The latest version of the infographic highlights the costs and benefits of the different nursing supply options and the timescales to be expected to recruit a registered nurse. It has also been amended for employers to see the new routes into the extended nursing family such as the nursing associate role and the nursing degree apprenticeship.

Previously the routes into nursing have been limited, with a university degree being the main way to train registered nurses. The introduction of the nursing degree apprenticeship gives a new opportunity for employers to train nurses. This and other new routes are explored in the infographic.
