In which case, our Fast-Track to Higher Education in Nursing programme could be a great solution for you.

At the University of Bolton, we support our students through a positive and supportive learning experience, we can help you fast-track your career in a rewarding healthcare industry. Let’s take a look at some of the key benefits that you can expect from a Fast-Track to Higher Education programme in nursing.
Prepare for a better career
The life-changing events of the last two years due to coronavirus have meant that there is a bigger demand for nurses now than ever; the UK government have pledged to increase the number of nurses working full-time in the NHS by 50,000 by March 2024. Sound encouraging? At the University of Bolton, our Fast-Track nursing programme means that you can start or return to learning and stay on the right path to your dream career by developing the academic and professional skills you need.
Top Results, Less Time
Perhaps, the main benefit of a Fast-Track to Higher Education in nursing is the fact that you can start your career journey in less time. The programme takes just four and a half months to complete with two days a week on campus, so it really is a short, beneficial way to prepare for your start to your chosen career. Additionally, this is where we start to see the benefits of fast-track over the traditional apprenticeship system. Apprenticeships could be portrayed as overshadowing the qualified employee in a slow learning process. However, fast-track programmes are quite the contrary. Fast-track students are often more enthusiastic on-the-job and are more likely to want their job after completing the programme. This means that they are more likely to add more value to employers and companies once they are fully qualified. Students who have been through a fast-track system also often retain more information than those who have been through apprenticeship training.
