GCU’s new Bachelor of Nursing programme was approved in August
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has launched a groundbreaking articulation agreement with James Watt College, Anniesland College and Cardonald College of Glasgow which enables students to enter the second year of a new nursing degree.
The partnership, first initiated in September 2010 with the three further education colleges, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Educational Partnership and Greater Glasgow Articulation Partnership (GGAP), provides students on the HNC Care and Administrative Practice with an articulation pathway to the Bachelor of Nursing programme at GCU without repetition of level.
GCU’s new Bachelor of Nursing programme was approved in August and work to map the HNC to the new degree programme started in September last year.
The launch event, which took place on Friday 27 April at GCU, was attended by representatives from Higher and Further education, NHS, Scottish Funding Council, Scotland’s Colleges and students from the HNC programmes.
It featured presentations by representatives from across the education sector, as well as student speakers who discussed their experience of the course to date.
Twelve students from the HNC courses at our three partner colleges will articulate to year two of the new nursing programme in September.
