Dental Nursing Apprenticeship

Manita, Dental Nursing student at Bournemouth & Poole College“I moved here from Nepal four years ago and decided I wanted to go back to college to be a dental nurse. It’s just the beginning for the dentistry. I could go on further to become a hygienist or even a dentist.

Being on an Apprenticeship means while I’m studying I’m working as well as earning money. That’s one of the benefits of an apprenticeship.

The facilities are really good here and I’m learning new things every day. The teachers are really helpful and I get a lot of support.

Doing college work alongside working and can be quite challenging, but it’s not impossible. Getting started is the hardest part, but once you do, you’ll know you’ll be fine and there’s always a teacher or manager to help.

The course is preparing me well for a career as a dental nurse.”
