The route you take will depend on whether you can study full time or part time.

If you wish to study a part-time course, you will generally need to be working within the health sector.
Shortened nursing pre-registration courses are also available to people with related degrees or experience. You will need to contact each university that you are considering to check if your degree subject is acceptable for entry. You can find out more on the What can I do with my degree? website. You will need to type your degree subject into the box on the home page to get access to the information.
