Nurse First: Class of 2011


After a highly competitive selection process, the first cohort of ‘Nurse Firsters’ has just been announced.  Dave Dawes, the Venture Lead for Nurse First, said “We have selected a fantastic group of people – not only will they rise to the challenge of the programme, but I’m confident they will challenge each other and the accepted ways of doing things in community health care.

The successful 25 are drawn from all over the UK - from Birmingham to Bradford, Newquay to Nottingham – and range from Nurses to a Physiotherapist, Health Visitors to a Dietician.  They will all be arriving at Buckingham New University in mid-October to start what is the first programme of its kind in Europe.
