No.
I believe that having already obtained a nursing degree (BSc) and being registered with the RCN is a prerequisite for enrolment on the MSc (which is a postgraduate qualification).

Thanks. Please, a case where the individual is an international student

The situation is the same.
The MSc is a postgraduate degree for those with a registrable nursing qualification and a licence to practice from the relevant regulator.

If you are a graduate already (completed an undergraduate degree) then you can apply to pre-registration MSc in Nursing such as this.

If you do not already have an undergraduate degree then you will need to complete a BSc in Nursing.

Other MSc such as Critical Care etc... normally require registration.

If it's a pre-registration MSc, then yes you can register as a nurse.

Nope. No nurse is registered with the RCN, it's a union so has members but not all nurses are members. You need registration with the NMC to practice as a nurse. A BSc, BN, MSc or MN in pre-registration nursing all lead to registration as a nurse.

You either do a BSc or BN in pre registration nursing, or MSc/MN if the university recognises your previous degree & experience, then register with the NMC.

Doing an MSc for Nursing will give you the chance to register with the NMC. You do not need to have studied a nursing BSc.
