For some people with an interest in the medical or caring professions, the hands-on approach of Nursing can provide a much better fit than qualifying to become a doctor. While the focus is much more on patient care than diagnosis and treatment, Nursing still requires a good knowledge of the sciences, and biology in particular. It is also a very demanding course and profession, physically and emotionally, so try and have a chat with someone who already works in it to see if it's right for you before applying. There is also the option of specialising in certain types of nursing so do your research on these different areas before committing to a course.
