Did you manage to attend the NHSP HCA interview>? if so are you able to tell me what the exam consists of?
I am pulling my hair out with stress and anxiety as Ive not been in the NHS long (2.5 months on a 2 day a week contract.)

i think the it has disappeared from nhs jobs now, but the one that was the band 6 at the new neuro floor at your end.
not sure what it is about that unit but that job keeps coming up as a secondment or substantively - i've not worked on there either the old site or the new so can't comment beyond that , currently considering a move back to A+E ,
ironically as a near the top of band 5 staff nurse you can earn more than 6s and even 7s if you are prepared to put up with the trauma and torment of 7 'nights off' a month by doing a full week of 7 nights while laughing all the way to the bank .... nights outside of critical care and the Emergency dept are usually rather limited for wearers of navy blue ...
I sat the RGN interview today and as there was no previous advice on here i thought i would post
First was the exam lasting 45 minutes
this was broken into three sections you had to obtain from the three sections
the first section had some simple drug calculations mainly converting mgs and mls etc
it also had some questions about a drug error and how many tablets would you dispense
the second section was mainly on general care, there was a question on a cannula that had tissued, how to dispose of sharps, general infection control and few practical scenarios nothing difficult though.
the third section had a question about safeguarding, parenteral feeding, an inactive stoma and missing CD drugs
i hope this helps any others going for an RGN interview
Good luck x
