Through our association with the University of the West of Scotland, we are able to offer student nurse placements at our homes in Bishopton. These placements are part of the University course and can last from four to eight weeks.
Depending on the stage of your training, there are various opportunities to learn more about specialist nursing care. This includes:
Depending on the home you are assigned to, you may also be involved in dementia and end of life care.
As a student nurse, you’ll be assigned a mentor who will be one of our registered nurses. Their role is to support, direct and guide your learning. We believe that this approach provides a positive learning environment for pre-registration student nurses from adult and mental health branch programmes within the University.
Student nurse placements are made through the University of the West of Scotland. Please contact your University course leader for more information.
We aim to achieve and follow the standards set by the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC), NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and other professional and regulatory bodies.
