    Look at wwwwhatuni.com

    Enter Nursing as a subject and then select Foundation courses from the 'Degree' drop down. You can also limit the search re. areas of the country etc. Also try Health as a subject. Then get on the phone and talk to the Unis/colleges about if the qualifications you have are enough for admission - or if not, what would be?

    Also remember that the Open University offers Nursing and the whole OU scheme is designed for people exactly like you - http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergr...sing/index.htm Would an OU Certificate or similar course be enough to get you into a conventional Uni - phone some up and ask.

    Good luck - hope it works out for you.

    As the other poster has said OU might be your best bet as you want to do the course part time.

    Access is usually one year full time and very demanding, but it seems to becoming more and more the qualification of choice for universities for Nursing.
