Content

Our SWAP Access to Nursing course is exactly what you will need if you are thinking of a career in nursing or care.

If you would like to train in the health industry but lack the necessary qualifications, this could be the course for you.

Access to Nursing is part of the Scottish Widening Access Programme (SWAP) and is specifically for people who have been out of formal education for at least 3 years (see entry requirements for more details). It prepares adult returners for entry into Higher Education and can lead to a place at college or university.

Health care is provided in settings such as nursing homes, residential homes, hospitals and resource centres for people with learning disabilities. The demands for a skilled health care workforce are increasing.

Entry Requirements

No formal entry requirements. Experience of working in a care setting preferred. Candidates should be out of education for three years. Entry subject to interview.

You will require a satisfactory criminal record check from Disclosure Scotland to show that you are suitable for this type of course. Contact Disclosure Scotland for details on the type you would need.
