    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if after your third year of nursing you can go straight onto a MSc?

    here are some things i'd like to pick:
    Nursing MSc
    Clinical Sciences MSc
    Medical Sciences MSc
    Cardiovascular Research MRes
    Public health MSc
    Neuroscience MRes
    Cancer MRes

    No you have to of been a RN first. Also I'd imagine you'd need a job as an RN along side.

    In the healthcare system, a Masters is generally seen as "professional development", so they usually specify some sort of graduate work experience in their entry requirements. Try checking a few uni web pages for the Masters courses you're considering.

    You asked the same question a couple of weeks ago: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4243118

    While you can self fund and do further courses immediately (and universities are more than happy to accept the thousands of pounds you'd pay), it is much wiser to finish your pre reg, finish your preceptorship, get some experience and find a clinical environment you like working in and do further study related to that area of practice.

    You'll find the course easier and be more engaged with it than a generic masters in nursing practice and it's more likely your employer will pay for it. Also, in some clinical environments, a post reg qualification in that area of practice is needed to app,ly for higher bands.
