Can anyone do the course?

Anybody with a reasonable standard of general education will be able to cope with the academic demands of the course. If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The course materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style.

In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

What’s actually in the course?

The course covers the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration, plus research to carry out. This will also help you to keep track of how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples in the course materials, but personal research is expected at this level, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is the course accredited?

The course is accredited by CACHE, who are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, The Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales, and the Council for Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.

What will I get from the course materials?

The course materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

What level is the course at?

This Course is a CACHE Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England (QCF).

How do I send in my work?

You submit your assignments one at a time for marking through our iLearn it Easy online portal. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review or rework the one you submitted.

What happens if I fail an assignment?

Don't worry, your tutor give you some pointers as to where you could improve, and will ask you to resubmit your assignment once you have reworked it.

We will send you ALL the course materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

The course should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if you require more time. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, the course can be completed in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?

There are generally no word counts given for the tutor marked assignments, but it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with the course. Many students start slowly at first, particularly if it's some time since they carried out any study, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Will the course help me get a job?

The course is Nationally recognised as a qualification which would therefore mean you would be a qualified teaching assistant on completing the course. Employers would recognise and accept this qualification.

What if I don’t like the course? Can I send it back?

Yes, if you are not happy with the course and feel it is not for you, you can return it within 7 days in accordance with the terms and conditions on our web site: www.mydistance-learning-college.com.

Do I need a computer to take the course?

Yes, you will need access to email and the Internet to submit assignments and do research. You will also need to word process your assignments. If you do not have Microsoft Office (or a similar package), we recommend that students download Open Office, which is free to download and use.

Is the course paper-based or online?

The course is paper-based and comes in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your course immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your course materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

No Final Exam!

Why did you decide to become a nurse?

I moved into nursing quite ‘late on’. I left school at 16 and worked as a receptionist for 15 years at a surgery; although it was something I was good at, I felt that I needed a change and I wanted to be able to help people.

I knew that I wanted to become a nurse but I was unsure if it would even be possible because I did not have any qualifications in the area. I enrolled on an evening course at my local college, to study health and social care level 2, and also asked a nurse colleague at work if I could shadow her on my days off. After completing my level 2 studies, I moved on to level 3 and had the opportunity to get work experience in a range of different settings. It was during this experience that I realised that I preferred working with adults, so when I applied to university, it was for a BSc (Hons) in adult nursing

I had to leave work in order to study as it was a 3 year full-time course; I was sad to leave my colleagues but I also knew I was moving in the right direction

I spent 50% of my time on placement, which I loved and the remaining time attending university lectures and workshops.

How much can I earn?

The starting salary for graduate nurses is typically £21,388, rising to £27,901, although this is likely to be higher for those living in London.

For nurses at senior level (bands 7-9 in the NHS), salaries range from £30, 764 - £98,453.

Working as a nurse can involve working unsociable hours, but payment is made for this to NHS staff. For those working on a Sunday or public holidays for example, salaries are paid at time plus 60%.

Career Progression

When nurses first begin in their careers, they are subject to a supported probationary period; after successfully completing this, the majority of nurses in acute hospital settings can progress from staff nurse positions to junior sister / charge nurse within 2 – 3 years.

Depending on the development of management skills and specialist knowledge, there are also opportunities for progression to specialist clinical roles, or matron, or director of nursing positions.
