    can I get a BSC in mental health nursing and then can I (if I wanted) do another BSC in child nursing?

    If I can, would it also be funded by the NHS?

    thanks

    According to http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/Students/827.aspx :

    NHS Bursaries are not intended for:
    Registered first level nurses seeking a second registration in nursing;
    So I'm guessing not? But I may be getting the wrong end of the stick.

    You can do a BSc in mental health nursing, then do a duel qualification in childrens nursing, which is 18 months long and equivilent to the two branch specfic years of the BSc. In regards to funding-it is wholey dependent on the trust.

    hope this helps xx

    just wondering, what qualification will you end up with at the end of your course? because at my uni there's a lot of debate over whether mental health should be BA or BSc, and I'm getting a BA.

    Yeah it depends wholey on the university, if I had done nursing 2 years ago at Keele I would have got a BN but now I'm getting a BSc.

    its a bit odd for a BA, but it depends on the content of the course.

    i'm not particularly planning to, it's just so I know what my options are down the line after say 15 years of mental health nursing and I wanted to try something new

    Hi, thanks for the reply, I know this may sound silly, and I feel really embarassed but I don't know what you mean :o:
    is there any way you could re-phrase at all?

    Sorry about this!

    If the NHS woudn't fund me I don't suppose you know how much the tuition fee per year would be? I.e. would it be more than standard subjects?

    thanks

    The NHS should fund you, else you could apply for a student loan. Juct cant imagine them funding alot of people atm because of cost cuts etc.


    and any university can give you a BN, BSc and BA interms of degree. it is entirely up to them.

    does that help? xx

    Yes it answers my other questions but i'm confused about this combined mental health and children's nursing, I haven't seen it offered on a university website and i'm not sure what you mean by that

    I think what herbal bug means is that you do a nursing degree for three years. And then at a later point if you then want to train in a different nursing branch (e.g. children) then you do a shortened course, which can take anything from a year to 2 years depending on the university. and then you will be 'dual qualified' i.e. qualified in 2 different nursing branches.

    i think the theory behind it is that mental health is less science-based than the other nursing degrees. so adult nursing get BSc and we get BA which i guess makes sense!
