Hello, I was due to finish my final year of BSc (hons) adult nursing but found out that I failed a 20 credit module during the resit period. I could not re-submit even though it was my first attempt and could not progress any further, because I had reached the end of the programme according to university rules (max. 6 years). This resulted in the university awarding me a BSc in Health and Social Care. I feel quite stuck as I still want to be a nurse, but don't know how to go from here. I looked at top up degrees but all of them are looking for a nursing register as an entry requirement. I currently work as a bank HCA (band 2) and all I can think of doing now is getting a band 3 HCA job and working my way up from there. Are there any other options?

1. Speak to your student union to ensure all appeal options are exhausted and the process has been correctly followed.
2. Reflect on what went wrong.
3. You could likely get a band 3 HCA job - possibly support to do a 2 year programme later on to get a bad 4 AP post later on, abs may be further support to get a registered nurse after that but it will be very hard work and you will be working at the same time.
4. Very occasionally another uni may let you go to them to do your final year again but you will need to demonstrate very good insight into why it went wrong last time and how things have changed.

Good luck

Yes that is what I have said above but they are unlikely to put you into that because you didn’t pass your final year.

band 4 AP (associate practitioner) isn't the same as nursing associate but the same length of training and same band of pay upon completion.

very few places now appoint to AP posts because they are moving to the nursing associate route. That’s not to say you might see AP posts but progression route is not as established now. I deal with all applicants for nursing posts in my Trust as part of my job. AP is no longer used as far as I can see.
