    I ultimately want to be a children's nurse. However, I know you can train as an adults nurse then do a conversion course (18months to 2 years) to become a children's nurse, does anyone know if you can do the conversion course while still working and earning?
    Thank you

    If you want to be a children's nurse why are you even contemplating doing adults? The conversion courses are few and far between and very hard to get on to due to competition. With the bursaries also being stopped from Aug 2017 NHS courses may change and who knows if conversion courses will still be around.
    They are also full time as you're doing more or less the same degree for a different field in half the time.
    So you could work but it would have to be part time and around the hours of the course.
    Ultimately, do a course that you're going to enjoy. In my opinion it seems silly to do a course that your heart isn't in.
