    I think you have to enrol on a degree course as I have a friend who is doing that in September. Probably best if you look on some uni sites to see what you need.

    Good luck it's an interesting job but I can imagine it being demanding and emotional at times.

    I too have wanted to do this for many years but I think now that with having a young family it wouldn't be possible especially to do all the training etc and then the long hours that go with the job. I'll be too old by the time my children are old enough.
    You go for it

    good luck hon. don't know if you have a degree already, you may be able to go down post grad route, otherwise an access course then 3 year degree is likely.

    i wish you well
