Train to become a Nurse or Operating Department Practitioner

If you’re interested in training to become a Mental Health Nurse, a Learning Disabilities Nurse or an Operating Department Practitioner, Edge Hill University is holding an open evening on Wednesday 23rd January 2013 at the Ormskirk Campus.

You can drop-in on the day from any time between 4pm and 7pm to chat to tutors and receive advice on the application process and entry requirements.

The open evening is for prospective students interested in joining our BSc (Hons) Nursing (Learning Disabilities), BSc (Hons) Nursing (Mental Health) or BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice in April 2013.

  • Operating Department Practitioners provide patient care and skilled support during surgery. They work with surgeons, anaesthetists and theatre nurses to help ensure every operation is as safe and effective as possible
  • Mental Health Nurses and Learning Disabilities Nurses provide care for children and adults with varying levels of mental health problems or learning disabilities. As a specialist nurse you will be able to develop individual packages of care based on the specific needs of your patients.p

You can expect your tuition fees to be paid by the Department of Health for these courses (subject to confirmation by the Government for students joining in academic year 2013/14) and you may be entitled to receive a means-tested NHS-funded bursary.
