Hundreds of ARU students join NHS front line

More than 400 ARU students joined the NHS front line in the battle against COVID-19, as part of a national initiative.

In short:

  • A total of 133 Adult Nursing and Mental Health Nursing students have recently completed their undergraduate degrees, enabling them to apply for Nursing and Midwifery Council registration and begin employment with partner NHS Trusts.
  • In addition, more than 300 Nursing and Midwifery students who are in the final six months of their degree are to undertake extended clinical placements with NHS partners, having either completed or scheduled their inductions.
  • A number of ARU staff have also returned to practice, helping where they can as the country continues to battle coronavirus.
