Building on your qualifications
If you’ve already got the relevant qualifications necessary to continue on your nursing career pathway, but don’t have any experience in a healthcare setting, check your current level of education below to see our recommendations.
GCSEs, A levels or equivalent level 2 or 3 qualifications
With level 2 or 3 qualifications, such as GCSEs in English and maths or A levels, you're equipped to move towards a career as a nurse in a number of ways.
First, get some relevant healthcare experience – you can do this by volunteering, shadowing or undertaking some work experience in a healthcare environment. Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how.
Once you have this experience, decide whether you’d like to study full time or earn as you learn.
