More places opened by popular demand for the Chichester Uni course Brighton News

The University of Chichester has opened more places at its new nursing and healthcare school, after strong demand since its launch.

The new 1,600 square meter facility, which will open to students in September, is managed in conjunction with Sussex University Hospitals and other healthcare providers.

Prospective students enroll in a three-year course in adult nursing which, according to school principal Dr Nita Muir, will help develop healthcare professionals capable of both compassion and courage in the face of extreme challenges, such as those encountered during the Covid pandemic.

Dr Muir said: “The launch of the new school has elicited an overwhelmingly positive response from our community and as a result we have created some additional spaces for students.

“We have partnered with leading Sussex healthcare providers to bring real-life contemporary nursing experiences into the curriculum to create a degree like no other.”

Once the facility opens, it will be outfitted with clinical equipment in several mock rooms to provide real-world simulation training to students and support clinical learning in various practice environments.

The state-of-the-art center was recently approved by the Council of Nurses and Midwives (NMC), which has given its full accreditation, alongside the Council of Health and Care Professions.

Students wishing to enroll must meet the entry criteria, which include a short interview and do not require university accommodation.
