I have been trying to find information about the specific qualifications needed to become an auxiliary nurse. I am a US citizen with double nationality in Portugal, and I am currently studying nursing pre requisites here in the States.
I want to move to the UK, but I was thinking about finished my associates degree in nursing here first (I realize you need a bachelors in the UK, but I want to study my bachelors there). I was wondering, if anyone knows if a US associates degree would qualify me for registry on the NMC as an auxiliary nurse? The equivalent here, certified nurse aides, do not need a degree, you just take a certification course that is around 130 hours.
As far as general education credits go in the UK, what courses besides your nursing classes do you take? For this year, I am taking English, Intro Sociology, Intro Psych, Developmental Psych, Math Statistics, Anatomy & Physiology I, Anatomy & Physiology II, and Medical Microbiology. I plan on taking General Chemistry as well. I have heard your courses are much more specific, but it would be great to here some inside information of the structure of the curriculum!
