Training to be a nurse or midwife
We provide high quality clinical placements for 600 children’s and adult nursing and midwifery students from King’s College London and London South Bank University.
The course is designed so that half of the time training to be a nurse or midwife is spent in clinical placements. Because of the size and nature of our hospitals and community sites, students can experience a wide range of specialist areas.
Students are allocated placements at Guy’s and St Thomas' once they have started their university course.
Training to be a nursing associate
We currently provide nursing associate apprenticeships with Coventry University and London Southbank University. We will be offering direct entry courses with Coventry University from September 2020.
Practice supervision and assessment
Many of our nursing and midwifery staff are qualified practice supervisors and assessors who strive to develop students to reach their potential and be competent and confident practitioners for our future workforce. Our practice supervisors and assessors adapt their approach to meet the needs of individual students and ensure that their time here is positive and productive.
Students may also be supported by a practice educator and clinical teacher. They are supported centrally by the clinical education team who provide individual support and group weekly teaching sessions that are led by speakers from a variety of clinical backgrounds to complement their learning in practice.
