    Hey all,

    I'm really struggling right now. Long story short, I was a nursing student, however, I recently stepped off the course because I felt it wasn't for me. I'm now reconsidering my options but would really like to go back to university.

    I have a big fascination with anatomy and physiology and I know I want a career in which I can apply such knowledge. I'm not really that interested in medicine so couldn't see myself being a pharmacist. One thing I have considered is diagnostic radiography, medical imaging of the body seems fascinating and I had experience with it as a student nurse. I have work experience arranged to shadow a radiographer to see if this is something I could potentially do.

    Can anyone recommend any other courses or potential careers I could go into? I really want to explorer as many options as possible before I take the next step. By the way all I have is an Access Diploma in health studies. I only have 2 GCSE's and I have no A-Levels.

    Thanks everyone.
