Nursing Degree

Base Game University Life

A degree in Nursing can open up a wealth of opportunities within the medical field for a Sim dedicated enough to venture down this avenue. The particularly dedicated should take the Masters degree to end up with a stellar qualification.

– 3rd December, 2019 ~ Added French and Dutch translations
– 20th April, 2019 ~ Added Russian translation

The next in the series of ‘degree’ careers is the Nursing Degree. This degree is a Master’s Degree and therefore has 4 levels. For a sim to enroll, they need 1 level in Logic, Charisma and Science and can enroll at the School of Science. It requires the University Expansion pack. For more information of the fake degrees, please visit the Deans Office.

This ‘degree’ career requires the Nraas Careers mod in order for it to show up.

Each level has 5 opportunities available for the student to participate in. The Nursing degree participates in the Medical Placement Challenge which is a four-part opportunity set with one opportunity per level.

The degree promotes into the Nursing Career although the career is not compulsory. If your Sim graduates with a BA in Nursing, they can promote into level 6 of the Nursing career. If your sim graduates with an MA in Nursing, they can promote into level 8 of the Nursing Career.

I’m currently unable to add expansion pack items as career or opportunity rewards so I’ve made the University Diploma plaque from the Uni expansion buyable for §0. It can be hung on the wall and requires the University Expansion Pack.

There are no uniforms set. I recommend visiting the University Essentials page for a list of recommended mods to enhance the experience.

    For some reason, it’s not working in my game. I downloaded a home university lot, even created a separate student union lot, added the rabbit hole rugs, skilled my sim to be lvl 1 in charisma, science and logic, and still nothing works. Can you please help me?

    I truly appreciate your career and apprenticeship mods!!! Two things, for these careers it seems like while my sims are at work they don’t eat, hunger meter never goes up. Also it seems like the performance meter just goes up even if I haven’t fulfilled the skills (I’ve only been playing with nursing so far) just wondering if it’s just me? I see you have the degree I’m about to add that now, these are so dope! Glad you included the driving school for my teens! You have made me relove sims 3 😂😂

      The hunger meter typically should go up around 1pm, or something like that. It’s a little different for night shifts but that’s not something I can change. The meter will go up even without the skills sometimes; again, that’s something I can’t change, unfortunately. However if you want the challange, modder Ani made a No Free Work Performance mod to prevent that happening:
      I’m pleased you are enjoying them and thank you so much for commenting!
