Royal College of Nursing Cadet Scheme

The RCN Prince of Wales Nursing Cadet Scheme gives members of the Army Cadets UK an introduction to potential careers in nursing.

Supported by HRH Prince of Wales, the scheme aims to develop and prepare cadet for life long success and to support them towards employment in nursing.

About the program

The scheme runs alongside the Army Cadet Syllabus, combining guided online and experiential learning. This includes learning modules and a clinical observational placement within their local health care region.

Once they have completed this, cadets submit a portfolio of reflection and gain a completion certificate. They are then supported to take decisions on next steps, which can include a level 2 or 3 related diploma, a foundation degree or an undergraduate nursing degree.

Where it’s running

The scheme is currently running across selected Counties and Contingents in England, Scotland and Wales.

We are currently working with RCN Northern Ireland to look at the suitability of running the scheme within their regions.

Interested in applying?

The Scheme is currently open for applications for Wales, Scotland and England. If you are interested in enrolling please complete the expression of interest form below and we will be in touch soon.
