Hi all, I had an interview last week and have now been offered a job as a nurse apprentice over 4 years. I don’t know anybody else who has started this and wondering if anyone has here who may know a bit more to how the hours are set out over the week? It says 2 days at uni 2 days at a permanent work base and 1 day at placement. It is due to start in March.
