NHS Nursing work experience

Life Science, Healthcare and Social Care

Applications are now open for the NHS NextGen Nurse programme, offering free placements for 10,000 14-19 year olds.

As the NHS struggles with capacity shortages, growing the nursing workforce is a massive national priority with huge potential for sustained employment growth in roles that span the worlds of science, technology and innovation through to leadership, management, and collaboration.

To introduce students to nursing, the NHS has partnered with social mobility charity Speakers for Schools to offer 10,000 work experience placements, with applications now open.

NHS England recognises that its workforce needs to reflect the diversity of the population it serves, so they have created an exciting yearlong project to entice more young people from across England into fulfilling NHS careers through an exclusive series of eye-opening, expert-led, virtual work experiences.

The programme – known as the NHS NextGen Nurse programme – will run from the start of the current academic year through to March 2023 and is freely available to any 14-19-year-olds who attend a UK state secondary school or college.
