    Hi! Hoping someone would be able to advise me on the benefits of gaining a MSc in Nursing as opposed to a standard Undergraduate degree? I have been offered a place on a post grad course with an Msc away from home and an undergraduate course at home. ANY advice would be much appreciated.

    The only benefit is that if it is like the PGDip you will complete it in two years as opposed to the three years for a BSc. You will also be writing at a higher academic level and it will be a very busy two years! Both BSc and PGDip (MSc) allow you to join the register on successful completion and you will also start at Band 5. If staying at home is going to be better/cheaper then I'd go for the BSc. I also decided to go the three year route because I didn't want to squash everything into two years and it's been the right decision for me.

    Sorry to thread jump and not help but what's the difference between the 2? Can you get band 6 with msc? I always thought you could. Obviously with experience
