After leaving school with very little qualifications at the age of 16, I knew my chances of becoming a nurse were zero. At the age of 36, I had 3 children and been in many jobs but no experience in healthcare.
I searched for a course which would enable me to get back into study and fit in completely around my family demands. I signed up to study English & Maths GCSE equivalences and Access to higher education in nursing, with DistanceLearningCentre.com last year and although have found it challenging at times I have completed it all and gained the relevant qualifications.
I have been offered a place at UCS Suffolk to start in September for adult nursing and know that the skills I have learnt through DistanceLearningCentre.com will prove invaluable. I cannot believe that I'm finally going into a career that means so much to me and am so glad that I decided to take that step a year ago as I am now well on my way to becoming a nurse!

I have always wanted to be a nurse but did not have enough grades to make me eligible to apply for a nursing degree. I have a two year old so I knew that going to college was not an option as it would have been very difficult.
Whilst browsing on the internet I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com and I thought the layout of the course would fit my lifestyle. I enrolled with DistanceLearningCentre.com and started my access to nursing in August 2013 and completed in June 2014. My tutors were excellent, very supportive and encouraging.
I have secured a place at university to study Adult Nursing starting this September which I am very excited about. I would like to thank my tutors for all the support you have given me and last but not least to DistanceLearningCentre.com for providing this great course.

I have enjoyed my studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com even though it was not an easy journey for me. My dream has always been to have a career and something to look back and be proud of. DistanceLearningCentre.com has helped me to believe this is possible.
It has been over 14 years that I have been out of the academic setting, so studying again was quite a challenge. There was a time I found it so frustrating and I almost gave up but was encouraged by my husband to continue. It was not easy to cope with the huge course assessments, my job, my son and other family commitments but eventually I pulled through. I also got lots of encouragement from my tutors who supported me throughout my courses and were there to answer all my questions.
My experience so far with DistanceLearningCentre.com has prepared me for whatever challenges that are there in the university. I am now more confident and ready than ever to face the future. I have been given an offer in Goldsmiths University of London to study social work. I want to use this opportunity to say thank you to my tutors for their time, support, patience and for making me a better student. I will recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone who wants to be academically challenged.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend it to anybody! It was a stepping stone towards my future goal, it got me a place in university to study Adult Nursing (BSc) and has even lined me up with a brilliant job as a health care assistant!
The tutors are so helpful and guide you through every step of the way and give regular feedback and updates. I love to think that if it wasn't for this course I would still be living the same monotonous life, in a dead end job. Take the gamble! 10/10

At first it all seemed rather daunting completing a course at home but at the same time the perfect way for me to get the qualification I needed to get into University. Having 2 children and a job it wasn't always easy, but I knew that in the end it would be worth it. Now my hard work has paid of and I'm officially finished and can go to uni!
All of the tutors I have had the pleasure of working with have been a great help and made the whole process a lot easier than I originally anticipated.
Distance Learning is something I would definitely do again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to others!
