Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing)

Nursing is a fast-paced and challenging profession that combines communication skills with medical care. Are you looking for a rewarding new role, but don’t have the qualifications needed to take your training to the next level? The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing) offers a flexible alternative to students who missed out on the traditional route to university. 

The course will increase your understanding of biological science, psychology and sociology and you’ll also explore topics including the history of the NHS and contemporary health issues. Consider the varied responsibilities of a nurse and find out where a career change could take you.

This programme is designed to support your progression to a nursing degree course and dedicated units will update your academic abilities. Develop the confidence to research independently and write assignments.

How does my Access to Higher Education Diploma work?

The qualification is completed via home study, which means that you can prepare for university without affecting your full-time job.

How long it takes you to complete your Access course really depends upon how much time you are able to dedicate to your studies. The programmes are designed to give you the flexibility to study at times that are suitable for you, and to fit your studies around your other commitments. The maximum time you have to complete your Diploma is outlined in your Individual Learning Plan (ILP). The minimum time you can complete your Access course is six months.

Throughout your learning experience, you’ll have the guidance of a personal tutor and can also connect with a digital network of likeminded students.

How will my Access to Higher Education Diploma be assessed?

The course is made up of a set of modules, with an assignment at the end of each. You’ll submit your work to your personal tutor for marking and receive learning credits. 60 credits are required to be awarded with an Access to Higher Education Diploma. 15 will be ungraded and 45 graded as a pass, merit or distinction.

What happens after the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing)?

Following your qualification, you can apply to continue your nursing studies at university. Opportunities for future employment include working for the NHS, a private hospital, a residential home or a school. You may choose to specialise and take on a role caring for adults, children, people with learning disabilities or mental health patients.  

As you advance in your career, there’s potential to be promoted to become a nursing sister, nursing consultant or team leader. Alternatively, going on to gain a master’s degree will equip you to work as an advanced nurse practitioner.
