Harlaxton offers a nursing option in the fall semester. UWEC nursing students in the first-semester of their junior year can apply to spend the first-semester of their senior year at Harlaxton. Students interested in this option should be aware that there are limited placements and that the courses offered at Harlaxton do not contain content in acute pediatrics.
