The NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) in the UK, permits prior learning, in any subject, to be recognized where it meets the course outcomes and requirements for applicants to apply for a pre-registration Msc. in Nursing. What this literally means is that, applying, getting accepted, and studying for an MSc. Nursing in the UK gives you the license to become a registered nurse.

And, you don’t need a background in any health-related course, because they accept ‘any subject’.

Pre-registration MSc Nursing, in the UK, is mostly spent in practice placements to gain practical nursing experience in hospitals, community homes, private clinics, and community nursing teams: (https://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/study/courses/msc-adult-nursing), and this a two-year postgraduate level course. One such University that does this program is Bournemouth University. The minimum classification for Nigeria is 2:2. and once you can prove you studied in English, for most universities, you wouldn’t need an IELTS result to apply to study, until the NMC registration point where it’s a prerequisite, irrespective of where you studied.

There are student grants and loans available once you qualify. You could also work while studying.

Want a career in nursing? Now’s the best time to start preparing and here’s where the work comes in:

  1. Application: Please visit the websites of the schools listed above and speak to their student representatives and staff via email. There’s a very effective electronic system in the UK and these representatives are equipped to answer all your questions.
  2. Gathering Your Documents: Find out the course requirements and documents needed and start getting them together pending when applications open.
  3. Statement of Purpose: You’d need to have a convincing and strong statement of purpose why you’d want nursing and how your values align with that of the NMC UK. Research the NMC UK’s values and create a compelling SOP that’d get you selected.
  4. References: You’d need to supply the needed academic/professional/character references as required by the University. Let your referees know what you’re applying for, and let it be people you trust who can put forward a powerful and beautiful referral for you.

Don’t forget: the University has advisors that will guide you with as much information you need, at whatever process.

Also, while you won’t need IELTS before applying to study – once you can prove you studied in English, the NMC requires an IELTS or OET band score before the actual nursing registration.

This means that you’d eventually have to write IELTS while studying.
