Entry to the pre-registration nursing programme at the OU requires you to be sponsored by your employer.
Nursing is a demanding and responsible profession, but it’s also a very rewarding one. You have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making a real difference to people’s experiences of illness and in promoting the health of individuals and communities. Nursing adults in the NHS or a private hospital or clinic may appeal to you, or you may want to specialise in mental health nursing in any of these settings. The pre-registration nursing programme is an exciting, innovative, work-based learning programme but also a demanding one, leading to a Diploma in Higher Education and registered nurse status.
