    Ok thanks, they're not too far really. Knowing I won't have to travel a million miles has put me at ease
    Chase Farm and Barnet are the other two hospitals by the way.

    I agree with u, on the conditions, they also asked for proof of address and national insurance, sent them over a month ago and was hoping to hear back from them but haven't yet....
    I also have to send my national insurance and proof of address how did you send them? If Via email what's the address and did you send scans?

    Hi guys, im strongly concidering applying to child nursing. Ive always loved working with children i head that the nhs pays for uni fees is that true? Also the pay for nurses seems quite low does anyone know the exact figure? Im trying to persuade my parents to let me do it but they said i wont be able to live a comfy lifestyle with the low wage they said and i quote 'nurses get paid peanuts'. I love helping others so im not going into nursing because of the paybut does anyone know Anything that would help??

    Thanks guys

    The NHS does pay for university tuition fees, but any other living costs i.e. rent and food are not paid for. Nursing salary isn't bad really, newly qualified nurses get about £21000 a year.
    You don't need your parents permission to do anything, if you want to be a nurse, do it. Money doesn't buy happiness

    If u want exact figures, I'm pretty sure they show them on the nhs website, also, by specialising after ur nursing degree can also increase pay. But yeah, Matthew is right, u should do what u want to do, all jobs have bad points, just think about what u want to do...

    Thanks for the quick response. I dont want to be a nurse for the money i want to do it cuz i love helping children. I know i dont need my parent permission but they need to agree with me too. They are not stopping me from applying but they think i should concider other options. Thanks

    Tbh most graduate jobs start from £18k and it increases over the years so it doesn't make a difference because you will pretty much get the same as everyone else . I'd rather do a job that I love and makes me happy than be miserable everyday for the rest of my life because of money.

    Ok thank you. Another thing is that my a level choices are not science they are: psychology, business, ICT and english literature. Do u think that would put me at a disadvantage ? What work experience or extra activities do u recommend?

    I dont think they would put u at a disadvantage, one of my a levels is ict too...i had personal experience which really aided my application for adult nursing and had no actual work experience related to adult nursing, but i guess u could try to volunteer at a hospital if possible but that is quite a long process or u could find some voluntary opportunities on do.it website...my friend who received an offer for child nursing currently volunteers at a disabled centre for children so that was really valuable experience she mentioned....hope that helped, sorry for the long message!!
