STAFF at Scarborough Hospital have been finding out about a new nursing degree which has been launched by the University of York.

Ahead of the start of the degree course in October, staff from the University will be visiting various sites across North Yorkshire.

As part of this roadshow staff visited Scarborough and Bridlington Hospitals.

The undergraduate nursing programme is one of the first in the country to go through the approval process with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Sue Ford, deputy head of the department of health sciences, said: “Our new programme is about preparing nurses who are equipped to deliver excellent care in a healthcare system that is undergoing tremendous change.

“I am extremely proud that our programme was one of the first to go forward for approval, underlining the excellence of our nurse training.”
