If you're caring, compassionate and have a commitment to helping people, you'll find a role within the nursing profession that suits you. You'll also need to be able to communicate effectively, courageously and with compassion.

To work as a nurse in the NHS, you must be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you'll need a degree in nursing. Our one-year Access to Higher Education pathway in Health Professions could help you to successfully move on to achieve a degree or diploma at university.
