    Anyone heard from Leeds?
    I have a selection day for mental health nursing there on 27th November. They were the second uni to get back to me but it could be different for other branches of nursing as I think this interview is specific to MH- no news is good news! Fingers crossed for you

    Hi, I am 17 years old and in year 12, I would like to study either general nursing or adult nursing, however I am concerned that I lack the experience required to gain entry into a university to study this!My only experience of working with people includes being a mentor to the younger years at my school (if that even counts) and doing 2 weeks work experience at The Royal London hospital. I am taking A Levels Biology, Chemistry, Theology and AS Maths. Do you think that this is ok so far?

    I couldn't get any hospital experience and I've got interviews at 4/5 universities I applied to so far, so you've already done better than me! My experience is working with people with mental health problems for a charity. I think they tend to be a bit more understanding with younger applicants and their experience as it is difficult to get things when you're under 18. I would still try to get some more if you can though- there's still time and the more you have, the better your application will be. Have you tried asking at nursing/care homes?

    Thank you and congratulations on the interviews! I will probably look into doing some work experience at a care home

    General nursing is not a thing anymore, you either do adult, child, mental health or learning disabilities. A small number of universities offer certain branches in combination.

    Your experience sounds suitable. You could try volunteering in your local care home or group for older adults?

    Thank you for the advice! I will most likely do adult nursing and I will probably get some work experience at a care home

    As long as you can apply any experience to nursing and how it will help you being a good nurse, you'll be fine.

    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!
