Hi!

I'm going into my final year studying Biological sciences, and have an interest in Nursing. I am debating whether studying Nursing at graduate-entry level is worth it. Any advice would be great, is anyone in the same situation? Has anyone been through this process before?

Thanks

Have you looked at the MSC nursing route as you will have a degree it maybe more suitable and attracts same funding as undergraduate plus £5000 bursary

That’s MSc then?
Nursing is definitely worth it.
I’ve got friends who are nurses and they have a variety of jobs
I know one young nurse who became the youngest HV in the UK,
then went on to work in 111, did her prescribing now is earning a lot and in higher tax bracket , working out of hours.
She also did Aesthetic treatments.
A lot of employers like the SCPHN qualification
Specialist community public health nurse.(HV)
Opens a lot of doors for qualified nurses.
You get paid band 5.5 to train then become a 6 on qualifying.
There are specialist nurses who do colonoscopies too and ones in GP surgeries.
Immunisation nurses who just work term times.
Specialist TB nurses.
Forensic nurses,
Research nurses.
You can work for private medical companies.
You can work abroad.
In New Zealand some nurses actually are partners in GP practices.
I’m doing adult nursing as it opens up more avenues.
Most people I talk to just think nurses just work in hospitals but there are so many different jobs it’s very exciting profession to be part of.
