Nurses are degree-trained clinical experts that play a crucial role in the health and wellbeing of patients. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team alongside doctors and other healthcare professionals nurses deliver treatment and care for patients in a variety of medical and social care settings, acting as leaders, carers and clinicians.

HEIW commissions multiple nursing courses at Welsh universities to meet the workforce needs of Health and Social Care Wales including, Adult Nursing, Child Nursing, Learning Disability Nursing and Mental Health Nursing.

Most students will be eligible to have their course fees fully funded along with a non-repayable bursary providing financial support throughout university.
