    Hi Chloe - how did you secure the interview for the volunteering position at Noah's Ark? Did you just contact them directly? And is it going to be on the actual ward? Well done on getting the interview and hope it goes well!

    Heyy guys!! I'm also applying for children's nursing for 2017! This is my second time applying. The first time I got an offer but I didn't have enough ucas points as I had 3 and a half alevels. I am now currently finishing the full alevel. This year I am applying to bucks new uni, Anglia Ruskin, Kingston, Greenwich and Bedfordshire. I've done my personal statement and just need to get it checked. I've only done experience in 4 different schools one including a special needs school. I am currently getting a job as a carer if not then voluntary work at a hospital. Don't worry too much about experience as long as you link what you do have to nursing really well you should be fine. Show passion towards nursing as well and good understanding

    Exciting good luck, I'm hoping to get mine sent off by this time next month, regarding the interviews I'm trying to think off them and feel confident, I can come across quite shy and quiet until I get to know people so I'm trying to feel confident about interviews so I can hopefully go into them without the nerves taking over as I don't want to be the quiet one they don't notice, how are you feeling about them?
