    I would think Sciences e.g. Biology & Chemistry would be useful. Not sure how essential they are for nursing though.

    Biology would be good.
    Tell her to have a look at university websites and see if they have any particular requirements.

    Does she know what branch she's going into? If it's child, she's probably better off doing a child care qualification.

    i wana be a nurse and took psychology, health and social care, ict and statistics.. i think i took the wrong subjects as you would be better with a science course.. but i also think it depends on the amount of UCAS points you receive.

    She'll do much better taking what she enjoys with maybe Health and Social or Biology, than pick ones she thinks'll get her into a good uni.
    Check out UCAS, and see the entry requirements for some institutions and go from there =)
