    Hi everyone!

    I have applied for adult nursing at university of Surrey, Liverpool, East Anglia, Coventry and Birmingham. I have had a weeks work experience in a hospital and volunteer at a nursing home for elderly people with dementia and a charity which organises projects for children with learning disabilities. I have sent my UCAS application off last Friday, now feeling very nervous haha!Just wondering if anyone has any interview tips or are in a similar boat to me? Thanks, good luck!

    Hello,

    I have been wanting to apply for nursing for years. I've had to work the long way around as Ive been looking after my grandparents. I've eventually got K101 Introduction to Health and Social Care, Open Uni. I've got 4 NVQ Level 2 and one at Level 3. Plus my 4 GCSE C grade. This gives me more than 5 A-C grade. I'm currently doing key skills level 3 Communication and application of numbers. So if anyone is struggling to re sit maths I find this much easier!!

    I'm worried about personal statement. Any tips would be much appreciated.

    Thanks guys 😊

    Literally talk about all these experiences, then integrate why that will make you a good nurse and talk about your personality too. You'll be absolutely fine if you do that! It seems like you're suited for the role and I wish you the best of luck!

    Hi sorry I'm not answering your question as I haven't even sent my application form yet. I'm also applying to Surrey and I'm considering east Anglia as my final choice. Have you been to east Anglia or do you know anything about it that drew you to it? Also have you heard back from any universities yet?

    Hi, thanks for replying

    I have actually heard from both Surrey and east anglia today inviting me for an interview !!

    East Anglia is obviously one of the best unis for studying nursing, the open day was fab and so were the staff, plus it's a lovely campus and part of England. I'd deffo recommend

    I only applied last Friday so I've received interview offers very quickly! And tbf I really love all of my choices they all have different pros and cons so I really don't mind. I think it is definitely between Liverpool, Surrey and UEA though

    When will you be applying?

    I thought Surrey do the interview on the same day as the numeracy and literacy tests?

    Hiya,
    I just received two interviews offers, one from Surrey (25th of Jan) and Southampton (8th of Jan). And I was wondering if anyone else is doing these dates.
    Thanks

    I'm not sure yet. I've finished my personal statement but I'm a bit nervous to send it off because I don't have any volunteer or work experience. I'm thinking of applying to some to start in December then sending it off in January so at least I have a month of experience
