The Cert HE Nursing Studies and Health programme is specifically designed to appeal to students wishing to pursue a career in Nursing. Access students have shown a huge interest in the programme in order that their career goals can be pursued. The Cert HE is also likely to appeal to those students who are already in paid or voluntary employment within the health care sector but wish to develop their skills and career prospects with an appropriate qualification. Successful completion of the Cert HE will provide an entry qualification onto the current Dip HE Nursing Studies and Health programme. On successful completion of the Dip HE students will have the opportunity to apply for their first choice Nursing degree.
