OU Adult Nursing entryWatch
"The degree programme is only available in partnership with employers who will pay the fees and will support the students in the workplace, and it addresses the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements for entry to the nursing professional register.This qualification is only offered by the University in association with partnering employers. You cannot fund this study yourself."
So basically you have to be in a medical envirnment with emplyoers who are interested in you furthering your education and getting a registered nurse status. I am not in that position, and i was wondering if anyone else has wanted to study for the Bsc Nursing in OU and managed through a different route to achieve it; or better yet perhaps if anyone know which healthcare organisations actually support this scheme that i can perhaps look in to getting a job there and gaining entrance that way? I live in the Manchester area btw.
Thank you so much!
Has noone here heard of or actually studied for Bsc Nursing through Open Uni then?
I've heard of it!! Although it's not well known, there's quite a lot of OU degrees which have restricted entry. With these work based degrees, the OU requires that the employer provides someone to supervise the student during the work based parts of their degree. The employer often pays as well. So if you don't work in health care, you can't do the degree. It might be worth searching Facebook for a group that's doing the degree and perhaps people there will tell you which NHS organisations they're with.
Anyone perhaps know someone doing this route with more information?
One person on my ward is doing it via the OU, she has to do 1 shift a week with us as well as placements and study. I'd prefer an actual uni though, it's quicker for one.
