Foundation degree Subject Intro: Nursing
Whether studying for a three-year diploma or four-year degree, you must learn a core set of skills in your first year, before specialising in one of four areas: adult, learning disabilities, mental health or children's nursing. Courses comprise 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice in hospitals.
Nursing graduates are qualified to work in hospitals, community health centres, GP practices and mental health units. Alternatively, you could take a specialised course in midwifery.
