What do you mean by "surgery nurse"? A nurse on a surgical ward or a scrub nurse?
You have to do a nursing degree to become a nurse - either through university (competative) or degree apprenticeship (rare, becoming slightly more available, really competative). This will lead you into work in surgical wards, medical wards, theatres, outpatients, community.... all sorts of places. Or, you do an ODP diploma/degree to become a scrub, anaesthetic or recovery practitioner.

The ODP diploma has been phased out in 2021

HOW TO APPLY
Studying with us in 2021/22 and 2022/23

The University has put in place measures in response to Covid-19 to allow us to safely deliver our courses. Information about the arrangements for the 2021/22 academic year can be found here.

Should the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continue in the 2022/23 academic year or subsequent years of your course, any additional and/or alternative arrangements put in place by the University in response will be in accordance with the latest government public health advice, pandemic-related/health and safety legislation, and the terms and conditions of the student contract.

Mandatory Vaccination Requirement

The Government is intending to introduce a mandatory requirement for those working in a health care setting (including students on placement) to have been vaccinated against COVID-19. If introduced, the requirement will affect this course as the completion of placement (s) in a health care setting is compulsory. This means that from 1 April 2022, all students on this course must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless they are exempt) before they are allowed to enter a health care setting to undertake a placement required for the successful completion of this course.
