I'm currently studying a BTEC National Diploma IT Practitioners (a computer technical subject with some business), along with a CISCO CCNA Networking Qualfication (not sure if this counts for anything). At the end of the course I should come out with 360 UCAS points. I fulfill all the GCSE requirements, and I'm going to study computer based degree at university after I've finished my course. My question is, do you think the BTEC National Diploma will be accepted if I want to join the RN as an Officer? I heard that only 2 A Levels (or equivalent) are accepted in 2 non-overlapping subjects .
