    Hello all. Looking for some advice and which route would be best to take. I’ll tell u a bit about my situation. I’m 29 American living in England and have got permanent residency in the uk. I’ve mainly worked in care homes as a HCA and have progressed to a senior. Only recently have started a post in renal as a HcA. I’ve got my level 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care as well as level 2 in medication handling. I’ve got the experience behind me but I’m wanting to progress further in my career now and go into adult nursing. I’m actually not sure where to start? As I’m not English I haven’t done GCSEs however I have the equivalent in my country which is a high school diploma. Would I need to do GCSEs here then go onto a uni to train? Also I don’t think they are doing bursaries anymore so What options are there to paying? I need to earn a wage whilst studying so thinking of doing part time is this beneficial more so than full time? Sorry for the long post.

    Thanks
