Nursing degree (2nd degree)Watch
There’s also Masters routes into nursing that get funding that might be worth looking into as they might not require extra qualifications.
If you do need more qualifications then an Access to HE Diploma in Health & Social Care would be the best option. It’s a 1 year course, you can get an Advanced Learner Loan to pay the fees and that gets written off once you get a degree and the course is accepted by pretty much all nursing courses.
They did say I could apply for the msc post grad and complete in 2 years since I have experience as a HCA but I wanted the full 3 years.
So I’ve been thinking about about possibly getting a second degree in nursing, I’m currently going into my final year of business studies at man met in September and I just don’t really see myself pursuing it as a career, but I feel like I’m already so much in student debt from completing the two years I might as well finish it. I was basically just wondering if I can get a tuition fee loan for a second degree, I read somewhere that you can only get student loans for up to 4 years (not sure how true that is) but I was just wondering if this would differ for nursing as it’s like an in demand degree for the NHS. Also, I was just wondering what other A levels are necessary for me to get to apply, I already have a sociology A level which is relevant but I’m just wondering if I have to do like biology, physics or chemistry or could I just do a health and social care A level over the next year and having that alongside the sociology A level would be sufficient?
