About Your Diploma 

If you’ve always thought about becoming a Nurse but life simply got in the way, or nursing has recently appealed to you as a career option, but you don’t have the desired qualifications, you can still make this career switch.  

Perfect Preparation for a Nursing Degree 

Traditionally, universities were quite strict on what they accepted as adequate qualifications to meet the entry requirements of their courses. This would limit many would-be students from pursuing higher education to reach their career goals, like becoming a Registered Nurse

Now, many more qualifications are accepted as adequate preparation for learners going into higher level study. So, if you don’t have GCSEs or A Levels, all is not lost. Many universities now welcome students with other qualifications like BTEC Nationals, Functional Skills or Access to Higher Education Diplomas. 

An Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing) is a flexible online nursing diploma UK learners can study that allows you to: 

  • Study from home or wherever suits 
  • Study at your own pace 

Its vocation focused modules provide you with knowledge and skills so specific to nursing that it can be used as the equivalent to 3 A Levels. 

Learn Everything You Need to Become a Nurse 

Throughout our Nurse course, UK learners will study a range of topics, including: 

  • Human Body – Discover facts about the human body, from the way we reproduce to how our organs function and the way our cells grow and divide 
  • History of the NHS – Understand the NHS’s founding principles and how it has been shaped over time 
  • Roles and Responsibilities of a Nurse – Learn about the purpose and function of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), as well as the multidisciplinary approach to healthcare 

You will also complete modules that focus on giving you the study skills for university, which is perfect for those who have been out of education for some time. For more information on what you’ll explore in our Nurse course, UK learners can see the ‘Modules’ tab.
