    The process mirrors the regular RN selection process, for those who meet the academic entry requirement and score high enough in the recruit test, with the addition of a nurses board in Portsmouth.

    Off the top of my head, because they spend 3 years in uni, they need to commence their ten weeks Initial Naval Training at HMS Raleigh at least ten weeks before the start of the university academic year. This being the case, there will only be one intake a year, usually June. Each intake is usually only about twelve people, so standards are high and the academic entry standard is set by the university.

    I would imagine applicants may still apply for this years entry, if it is not already full. To check specific entry and training criteria, talk to the specialist medical recruiters in Portsmouth: 02392 727096.
