I have a previous degree in the creative industries with no bearing on nursing and have just been accepted to start in September 2020. As long as you meet entry requirements I don’t think actual subjects matter. that’s my experience anyway Goodluck.

Plus some unis do masters in Nursing Studies which qualifies you as a reg nurse and you don’t need a nursing or health care degree specifically this for it but it usually requires approx 500 hours of recent healthcare experience in the form of a portfolio as one of the entry requirements. I couldn’t do the masters with my degree as I didn’t have this 500 hours so I had to apply for the BSc in Nursing Studies instead

i would expect that it would get you onto the masters course. but i dont think it would make it shorter. if you were a nurse switching and had a relevant degree it may help.

I have a previous non-health care /science degree too and I just got accepted onto a BSC in Adult Nursing for this year, it still counts as tariff points and level of study. I had the option of the Masters in Nursing too which is a 2year course usually and also qualifies you as a reg nurse but it required a 500 hours of work portfolio within healthcare (can be voluntary or paid work) as well as any previous degree (any field) but I didn't have these hours and wouldn't have had enough time to achieve them before the masters intake. I chose to do the BSc instead as a result and it's a better option for me in my circumstances as the funding is better and I like the idea of an extra years placement experience.
