Midshipmen and nursing training in the 1940s

This is a bit of an obscure question:

At what age would it be possible to see active service as a midshipman during the Royal Navy in WWII? Would it have been 18, or could it have been younger? I thought that boys who had been naval cadets might go to sea younger, would that be right?
Searches: I tried various combinations of Royal Navy/active service/cadets/Dartmouth/Royal Naval College/WWII

How long would it take to train as a nurse in the late 1940s, and at what age would you start? Searches tried: "nursing training, length, age, 1940s"
