    Hi, many universities accept 2 a-levels & the BTEC health & socialcare alongside it for nursing. However, if you have any universities in mind you could check their entry requirements to be sure.
    What branch of nursing are you interested in?
    You may find this general information on nursing courses useful too: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Nursing_Degree

    When you have started you Alevels you might find it useful to visit a university open day to find out more about mental health and children's nursing. You can also read up about them online to learn more about the role and what options there are within those two fields.
    Getting work or voluntary experience will also be really useful and help you decide on which field of nursing you want to study, it's worth seeing what connections your college has when you start your Alevels as some colleges have hospitals or charities they can send volunteers to.

    They usually like you to have at least one science and the health and social care will be a good idea. I was on a midwifery course and my a levels were Biology, Health and social care and Psychology. But I would advise having a good old looks on the entry requirements for the websites of the uni's you're interested.
    I would also recommend looking into getting some work experience in a hospital or volunteering to help get you experience and give you the edge when it comes to interviews and the application process.
