In 2010, the Nursing and Midwifery Council amended its required minimum outcome for pre-registration nurse education to degree level study. As a result, employers will increasingly require their nurses from band five upwards to hold a degree qualification as a minimum. This course will enable staff to top up their qualification to degree level and therefore maximise opportunities for career progression.
