    Hey guys, joining this thread really late but I've applied to do a PGDip in Children's Nursing at King's. I passed the numeracy and literacy test and have my MMI in early March.
    I also applied to King's (Adult PGDIp) Finding it tough to find my fellow PGDip peeps haha! I started a PGDip thread in King's forum if you wanna join that, only found one other person so far. We are few and far between amongst all the BSc people. Good luck in your MMI, I really enjoyed mine, I found it much nicer than a one to one thing.

    Haven't heard from QUB or UU yet about nursing interviews! QUB said in the next few weeks and UU said interviews will be held from 29th February, so I'm sure we must hear soon. QUB says keep an eye on emails as that's how they will contact us.

    Some common ones are a patient has been racially abusive to you, how would you deal with this?

    Thats for general adult nursing though, so MH I'm not so sure! possibly surrounding dementia and patients with it at a guess! what university is this for?

    Good luck!

    Ah right, I suppose the scenarios will be a mixture between me and the patient. Thanks. I was also thinking for MH, something about confidentiality, so if someone was at risk of something along those lines? Then I would mention about breech in confidentiality. And also if someone was being aggressive due to dementia or something.

    It's awful this and I can't remember which one exactly as I have a lot of interview within the next week so at the moment I couldn't tell you, one in Scotland though. .. ahaha.

    oh haha well good luck! all the scenarios i have been asked or heard people have been asked are about dementia patients and dignity and racially abusive staff, and just the usual. to be honest though they're like common sense within nursing, just stuff you would do if you were actually in that situation so you will be absolutely fine when you get in there!!

    I found that is was really difficult to prepare for any scenario related questions as you have no way of knowing what they will ask. Saying that, if you have had any experience working in any healthcare related stuff then the answers should come somewhat naturally. Additionally I think with scenario based ones there is no wrong answer really as long as you can justify why you would do what you do in that situation. If you are a little off the mark, the interviewers normally at least give you a chance to rethink it and you can normally tell when that happens. It's unlikely they will ask you a question, listen to your answer and then leave it at that. They should prompt you to go into more detail if they want it.

    It's important to think of the interview like a conversation not just a question answer kind of thing

    Yeah I do volunteering in a hospital ward so hopefully I'll be able to use my training and experiences there for my scenarios. It's stupid personally I think but oh well, trouble is I have 10 of them for one of my university interviews so I'm guessing for that one its all dependant on the scenarios which is a terrible feeling. Thank you for your help

    Ah I know, hopefully my hospital volunteering will play a slight useful part in the scenarios as I will be able to use my training etc to hopefully help haha.

    Thank you for the luck. .really going to need it.

    I also applied to King's (Adult PGDIp) Finding it tough to find my fellow PGDip peeps haha! I started a PGDip thread in King's forum if you wanna join that, only found one other person so far. We are few and far between amongst all the BSc people. Good luck in your MMI, I really enjoyed mine, I found it much nicer than a one to one thing.
    Hey, thanks for the head's up! I'll definitely join if I get an offer. Haha, I know right, a lot of the PgDip groups are from ages ago. Thanks a lot and congrats on the offer, hopefully I'll be in your shoes by the end of March. I don't wanna stress out about it too much because I'm still at university, and have so many assignments due around the time of my MMI. How long did you have to wait until you heard back from them and how strenuous is the APEL form to fill out?

    They took 12 days to get back to me but it felt like years haha. King's APEL was ok, took longer than the 2-3hrs they said it would take but I also have an essay based one to do for another uni which im kind of hating on
