Senior Nurses and AHPs: Kings College wants you!

Fancy studying for a funded course at one of the top five London universities for a year?

The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at King's College London is now recruiting for those interested in studying for an Older Person's Care Fellowship during 2017/18. 

They are looking for dynamic senior nurses and Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) from across England who are:

  • passionate about their roles,
  • champion the priorities and preferences of older people,
  • able to challenge barriers to provide effective cross-boundary working and age-attuned services.

The deadline for applications is 10 November 2016.

There are 30 funded places (covering tuition fees and travel) for the 12 month course. The Fellowship builds on participants’ experiences and capabilities, with students awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Practice (Level 7) on successful completion of the course.

About the Older Person's Care Fellowship  

The course is designed to enhance care for older people and progress the development of an older people’s speciality. It focuses on up-to-date clinical knowledge, contemporary models of care such as comprehensive geriatric assessment, as well as quality improvement and innovation in older people’s services.

The Fellowship is sponsored by Health Education England, for senior (band 7/8) clinical nurses and allied health professionals (AHPs) such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists, who work clinically with a predominately older population in acute, intermediate, community, primary care, mental health, or social care. This Fellowship expands and replaces the very successful King’s College Older Person’s Nurse Fellowship, and reflects the multidisciplinary ethos in services for older people.
