Courage, confidence, compassion, selflessness and integrity are all traits you might use to describe someone who is a superhero. However, unlike the one you might be imagining in your head right now, our heroes don’t wear capes. These are our nursing students’ stories. Ordinary folk just like you or me, but with the ambition to qualify as a registered nurse to serve their local community.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a Nurse, we want to hear from you.

BN (Hons) Adult Nursing, Leighton Hostpital, Crewe

The support you get at Leighton is brilliant. Because the cohorts are small, this enables a more personalised experience where students and lecturers know each other by name.
