How to Become a Nurse in England


Nursing is one of the most important medical careers in the world. Nurses provide first aid, education and emotional support to patients. Follow these steps to become a nurse in England.

Things You'll Need

  • Nursing diploma or degree
  • Meet residency requirements. If you plan on getting your nursing education in the U.K., then you need to live in the U.K. for at least 3 years before you qualify for a nursing diploma or degree program.

  • Make sure you are old enough to begin your nurse's education. You must be at least 17.5 years of age to start your nurse's training. If you are between the ages of 16 and 19, you can qualify for a junior apprenticeship program if you have the aptitude and grades to qualify.

  • Complete your nursing education. You have the option to take a 3-year diploma course or a 4-year degree course. Both programs dedicate half of their time to practical training and half of their time to theory development. When pursuing your nursing education in England, you will have four branches of nursing to choose from: children's nursing, mental health nursing, learning disabilities nursing and adult nursing.

  • Register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council once you complete your nursing education. In England, you have 5 years between the time you complete your education and the time you register before your window of opportunity closes. You need to renew your registration every 3 years.
