I'm not a world authority on this, but I'm guessing that a health sciences access plus some work experience in your local care home would be a better preparation for uni applications. You won't be limiting yourself to one destination then.

The only way to be 100% certain is to have a look on some of the websites of the universities you think you might be interested in and see what their entry requirements are. If they don't list the types of access course they accept, you may need to email the admissions department for further information.

Generally, you would be better off doing a health access course rather than a nursing access course as the admissions departments might think you are confused about what you want or have changed your mind, which doesn't demonstrate great dedication to the course.

Majority of the entry requirements say a health related access course and nursing is that. Also my full course title is Access to Nursing, Midwifery and Health Studies which is a bit more broader. I also asked my career adviser and she said its been done before and even met someone who did it.

Your original post only said access to nursing which is why I recommended that it may be a bad idea. Whilst I'm sure many people have done OT with a nursing access course, it seems very foolish to do anything that may hinder your chances at all. Obviously if there were no broader options available then the person may have had no choice and could explain this.

Access to Nursing, Midwifery and Health Studies should be fine, but I would urge you to use the full title when discussing your access course at interview.
