You apply through UCAS, like everyone else.
All nursing degrees require 3 A levels or equivalent. According to these:
https://www.bradford.ac.uk/courses/u...ing-adult-bsc/
https://courses.hud.ac.uk/2021-22/fu...adult-bsc-hons
...Bradford has no specific subject requirements, unclear whether Huddersfield actually demands a science or just needs the practical element of the A level passed.

Your best ways of getting onto a nursing degree at all are:
- do an access to nursing course (1 year long, worth 3 A levels, accepted by most universities offering nursing degrees including both Bradford and Huddersfield)
- see if there's any nursing degree apprenticeship courses available in your area. These don't always require 3 A levels and take prior experience into consideration, however are few and very far between.
- Train as a Nursing Associate and then later on do the top up to RN course if you want to. Available at both Bradford https://www.bradford.ac.uk/courses/u...ip-foundation/ and Huddersfield https://courses.hud.ac.uk/full-time/...sing-associate

Those Universities will publish their clear minimum entry requirement on their website.

Many will also expect you to provide evidence of recent assessed study (no more than x number of years ago).

NHS HCAs currently in their posts can get their employer to sponsor them through the Open University to get a nursing degree.
