Clinical Sciences MSc
Medical Sciences MSc
Cardiovascular Research MRes
Public health MSc
Masters after Bachelors Watch

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.
