    Hello!
    So you get 2 weeks for christmas, 2 weeks for easter and 2/3 for summer. This changes each year though but is roughly the same. Each week is completely different, some weeks are 9-5 mon and fri, and some are like 4 lectures in a week, completely random. X

    Ooh good luck! We were given a document to read so i read that, as well as researching recent events, so francis report, a&e pressures etc. i also read up on what made a nurse, what traits they should have etc x

    Hi! I have an interview to study children's nursing at Bucks New Uni! They have asked me to bring a recent health care article with me, do you think I should find one that links into children's health or would just a health care article that I can talk in depth about be good?

    The interview consists of a maths and english test, a group interview and a single interview.

    Any help will be good! Thankyou! x

    Hey everyone! I'm a first year child nurse at southampton university. When I applied for nursing I found this forum so helpful, and I wish i'd had the opportunity to ask a current student nurse any questions that I had, so i've started this so that all you lovelies can ask me anything! x


    Hi there, I'm just asking for some advice really, i had an interview at the beginning of january and haven't heard anything back, i'm not sure whether to ring the university or to sit tight, when I have rang before there were lots of applications to go through? thanks x
