I'm a US student right now and am trying to decide whether I should see about applying to one of the UK schools
for Nursing for next October.
I'm quite confused on all of these rules about the NHS, but can non-UK citizens join a nursing program in the UK? Even though the price of tuition is higher vs. the UK citizens?
Here's a link of Leed Met's Nursing Requirements. If anybody wants to have a look..
Also, how is the nursing courses in the UK different than in the US? Do you still take the numerous upper division science courses such as, MicroBiology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Chemistry .. that US students take?
I'm sorry, I'm so lost! :imbar If anybody can shade some light on this topic, it would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi there again and happy holidays to everyone both away and in the uk.
I was really worried about those extra clinicals and theory we will need to make in Obstetrics, mental health and pediatrics, in order to work in the US. I have looked in several universities and the choices are all the same : Adult / child/ or mental health only specialization, there seems to be no option to do all the others at all during the degree.
What i have found however, was that in all the same Universities, on their (continuing professional education page) they all seem to offer modules on the above) child or pediatrics, mental health etc..would that work?? If anyone would like to check it out (Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge Uk) as a pretty well organised and easy to navegate page)could these modules be a solution, i hope so it would help so many of us..Carla
