Hi guys so I chose my a-level options : biology, psychology and sociology. So... I've been looking at nursing degrees and my uni offers a nursing degree both BNurs and MNurs. What is the difference between these two degrees? So far all I understand is that MNurs is 4 years long rather than 3. My plan is to become an ANP and I heard that you need a masters in nursing.

It’s up to you what you do your pre reg course in, the ANP course is a masters, but it’s a masters in advanced practice, so you’d need to do that course whether your pre reg course was a bachelors or a masters.

Heyy!! I was in the exact same position before I officially applied for the MNurs programme. Basically the main difference is that with the MNurs degree you come out with a higher qualification because you spend the 4th (MNurs course) year studying at "postgraduate" level, that's the answer I got from my interview when I asked this exact question.

btw what uni did you apply for, UOB?

Hi, just wondering. Do you get the same qualifications in the 4 year master undergraduate course as you would for the 2 year postgraduate masters? Or is it different??

The undergrad award will be a bachelors degree, a masters would mean you have a masters. They would both lead to registration as a nurse and allow you to practise as a nurse. I’m yet to be convinced that a preregistration masters leads to any sort of accelerated career pathway compared to a bachelors degree though.

Right I've done my research and I received an offer for a 4 years long degree, University of Birmingham has a 4 years long programme where you work towards being an Adult Nurse but with a dual registration... Adult and Mental Health so that you can work in both districts.

i've heard of a few who seem to have an accelerated career pathway, but itps often like Police accelerated promotion scheme and also seems to depend on brown nosing and those who provide Matronage staying with the employer / taking you with them
