This vision comes at a timely point with the introduction of new Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) pathways and invitations to tender to all existing and potential new providers of healthcare education by Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW). The very first cohort of nursing students commenced their studies in Aberystwyth in September 2022.

The post holder will support the Principal Lead for Healthcare Education to design and deliver new provision in Level 4 programmes, pre-registration Adult Nursing, Mental Health Nursing degrees, and Return to Practice programmes.
