Sixteen nurses have become the first cohort to graduate from an innovative midwifery pilot programme at the The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI).
On 5th of July 1948 the National Health Service in Scotland was created.
“We are again increasing nursing and midwifery student intake, with more than 4,000 places available in 2019/20”
“Let us not forget that in England student midwives and nurses do not get any bursary at all, which makes this increase for Scotland even more progressive. “
“NHS Highland welcomes the support of the Scottish Government to this exciting new initiative which will open up career options for nurses who are committed to working and living in Highland area.”
UHI runs BSc nursing programmes in Inverness and Stornoway
