Nursing students sought for course starting in September 2024

People who study on Island will have university fees paid by government

People who are considering a career in nursing on the Isle of Man are being sought.

Manx Care is recruiting for a new cohort of around 40 trainee medical professionals who are being offered the chance to study for a Bachelor in Nursing qualification from September next year.

Students who study on the Island will have their university fees paid for three years and will also receive an annual bursary of £10,000.

The qualification is run in conjunction with Chester University and designed to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The course is primarily based at Keyll Darree on the Noble’s Hospital site.

Manx Care says it will allow people to study at home on the Island, if they wish to, without having the expense and stress of travelling further afield.

At the same time the health body says it will build ‘the future nursing workforce’ for the Isle of Man.

Dr Bernadette Devlin is a senior lecturer:
