Hello all,

I am a healthcare assistant finishing my access course to nursing. I was asked by my matron to get onto the nursing apprenticeship programme which I am excited about, the only problem is that the proposal put forwards by the hospital to the board, might not be accepted this year.

This leaves me with the nursing associate route. I'm not very familiar with this route as I've never considered it. I've read there used to be a waiting period from qualifying as a NA to be able to apply to become a student nurse, but my colleagues think you can now do a top up straight after completing the NA course.

Does anyone know if this is accurate and also if I have a level 3 (access course to nursing), does that give me any advantage on the course at all or was it a waste of time?

Many thanks
