2nd year Nursing Student transfer to physiotherapy?

Hi there,

I'm a second year nursing student and I'm just really not enjoying it anymore and don't think I want to be a nurse. I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible for nursing students to transfer to other courses using their already collected credits (i.e physiotherapy...) without needing to complete the whole 3 year course.

Thanks in advance :smile:

If physio is offered at your uni I would suggest you go and chat to the course leader to see if a transfer is possible. I suspect it won't be due to the specialist nature of healthcare courses as the modules are likely to be very different.

If you decide to withdraw and apply elsewhere for next year, then read the following transfer FAQ:

Hi

Why not complete your nursing degree first and foremost before even thinking about physiotherapy as this way you have majorly of the medical practice you need...

Remember that you are not certain to get a offer for physiotherapy and you might have to unfortunately do the whole 3/4 years course to be a qualified physiotherapy. You might be better perhaps doing a two year post graduate course ( masters) after you complete your nursing degree.


Is your problem with your current places that is putting you of completing your nursing degree as I'm sure you will be a fantastic nurse when you are finished in over a year time. Don't go and waste the last two years 😭.

Have a look at this and see what you think 🤔🤔🤔.
