The NHS Chief Nurse in the Midlands has congratulated local students receiving their A Level, T Level or BTEC results today, calling on anyone not sure of their career path to consider joining the NHS through the final remaining nursing and midwifery degree places available.

Already this year, 31,430 people in England have signed up for a nursing degree, and 7,490 have applied to become a midwife

Now exam results have been announced, clearing places are available for nursing and midwifery and the NHS is reminding students who may be reconsidering their choices that a future in health care could be the life-changing career they’re looking for.

Students will also leave university as one of the most employable graduates in the UK, with 94% of those studying nursing landing a job within six months.

UCAS clearing is now open and prospective students will be able to apply for courses until 17 October. Entry requirements for nursing and midwifery degree courses will vary, but students are advised they will likely need at least two A Levels or equivalent. Contact a university directly to find out what specific qualifications are needed.

If you think nursing could be the career for you, search ‘NHS nursing careers’ to find out more about the range of roles within the NHS and how to apply.
