Do I need a degree?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

     

    I have been qualified now for nearly 4 years and work in renal nursing. I am currently trying to complete my dissertation for Batchelor of Nursing but it is going really slowly with constant obstacles in respect of progression! :mad:

     

    I just wanted to know if I can still work with an Advanced Diploma or do I need a degree? Obviously I have passed the ANMC requirement and have been awarded a visa, but I would like to concentrate on getting the house ready and getting over there and possibly re-start my dissertation when I get out there. It would take a lot of stress off all of us (PMS is nothing compared to study!!):arghh:

     

    I know it would be an advantage to have it but at the moment my sanity is probably more of a priority!

     

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    No you dont, I dont have one and have never had a problem finding a job. I am diploma qualified. They do pay what they call a certificate rate here (I get it for my midwifery qualification - diploma). My husband has a degree so he gets certificate rate but this is payable for any specialist certificate so if you have teaching certificate or icu certificate then you would get the same.

    No you don't, I was told that our diploma is equivalent to their degree, I have never had a problem getting a job. Good luck

    Thank you for that. Really didn't want to admit defeat but with a poorly dad and a waywood teenager, just don't need the added pressure! Jane
