    Hi!

    I just received an email today offering an interview at Anglia for child nursing! When is your interview?
    The essay question will probably be centred around a current issue regarding nursing and health care at the moment. I would advise you read as much as you can about current issues and research the role of a nurse. Also reading the stuff in the news about the NHS at the moment might be really useful as it is a pretty big deal.
    Good luck!

    Yeah there is loads of stuff going on right now and so many articles. I think if you just have an idea of a range of issues you should be fine. Usually they ask for your opinion on an issue or situation.
    I had an interview at Brighton and I was so nervous, but it is so relaxed and they are all so friendly that it ended up as quite a good day
    My interview is the 28th Feb!! 2 weeks!!!!

    When i was interviewed for clearing (i got the place ) they gave us a talk then, we had a written essay type test and we were asked to write about communication. A simple maths test and then group interview discussing communication.

    Hello guys I had an interview a few days ago, so I'm here to calm your worries. You go in to the building and sign in at reception, before being taken into a hall where you have a welcome talk. You will then have your literacy and numeracy test. The numeracy test is fairly simple the literacy test was a simple question and it involved you writing for half an hour straight.

    You will then be split up into groups and taken away for your discussion. This involves debating and answering a topic given to you.

    Lunch!

    Then your individual interview. Seriously - relax for this part. They just want to get to know you. They have your personal statement with them and the nurses who I talked to were really nice.

    The interview experience as a whole I found to be really wonderful. I got to speak to other adult nursing wannabes and we all had a fun time.

    Just relax! ^_^

    Thank you so much for this! It's really helpful how long roughly was the interview day? Are you looking to study Adult Nursing to start in September as well?
    The day lasts until 3 PM maximum. All interviews are around 10 minutes long so if you're not chosen to go first, you should get through it in no time.

    And yes, I've just received a conditional for September Adult nursing ^_^

    It sure is. I've already met the academic entry requirements so it's essentially unconditional - the campus and its building are so beautiful. And goodness... it's Cambridge!

    Yes, yes do let me know.

    Hello there

    I'm afraid for the individual and group interview I can't be much help; on the day, the Child nurses were instantly split up from the Adult nurses and I didn't see any of them the entire day - I wouldn't know what kind of questions you'd be asked as they would be completely different from ours and specific to your branch of nursing.

    As I said in my original post, they're fairly laid back, so just relax! Everyone else is going to be in your shoes too.

    The numeracy test requires you to know your basic maths, basically so that when you take the course you'd be fine calculating drug percentages for patients. If you have a GCSE/O level in maths you'll do swimmingly - just brush up the day before.

    The literacy test is a statement/question and you have to interpret it as you want.

    You're timed on both tests.

    Don't worry if you don't know anybody - I didn't either and I got to meet some very awesome people, and we had some wonderful discussions on current healthcare issues.

    Good luck!

    Me again.

    If you look up through the replies I've given, you'll get a fair idea of what to expect on the day. It's relaxed and friendly.

    You should email the certificates through to ARU a maximum of five days prior to your interview - I'd scan and email them now so it's out of the way and done with. You don't need to take them with you, as if you're given an offer, you'll bring the originals along to a pre-course welcome meeting.

    Out of interest, are you going to Fulbourn or Chelmsford?

    Hi!!!

    I had my interview at Anglia Ruskin a while ago for child nursing. I can see they're still interviewing but I haven't heard back from them, is there any chance I could still have an offer or should I cross it off the list?
    The UCAS deadline date for Unis getting back to you is 10th May so it's starting to cut it fine tbh :/

    Thanks.

    Hello.

    I'd keep your fingers crossed. There are a limited amount of spaces for nursing courses, and the university has to make sure they don't overbook their classes. If they're keeping you on, it most likely means you've passed the test, and they want you - but there's someone, somewhere sitting with that space on their UCAS track wondering who should be their firm and insurance.

    Just sit tight and as more universities get back to students, more will accept/reject ARU and they can get back to you with their decision.

    After talking to lots of nursing applicants at interviews, most talked of receiving rejections pretty quickly, and I've experienced the same thing too.

    So keep checking. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
