    I went to London Southbank open day and I also had a taster session at City which I believe was helpful. I want to go to a few more open days also.
    To be honest I haven't even given the interview process much thought so far.

    What universities are you hoping to apply for?

    What is everyone most looking forward to at Uni and do you plan on getting involved I.e extra curricular activities ?

    @jordan-clo

    Depending on where you want to get work experience or volunteering, it is sometimes quite simple. Hospitals may be slightly harder to get experience in however, settings such as a pharmacy, nursing home, charity shops, nurseries are more welcoming for volunteers and work experience.

    Hi I am applying for Adult nursing this year after 4 straight years of unsuccessful's for Midwifery. I am applying to Essex University and Havering Campus at London South Bank Uni. I really hope I have a bit more of a chance with adult nursing then I did with midwifery. I work Bank shifts as a Health care assistant at my local hospital so I work along side nurses which has made me want to apply.

    I wasn't gonna apply for nursing this year, having gotten AS grades that I wasn't pleased with (BCE), in Bio, Law and Economics. Thought I might as well take a risk and apply, nothing to lose..

    I'm not really sure about where I want to apply to yet, but the grade requirements range from ABB - BCC so hopefully I'll get at least one offer.

    Good luck to everyone applying

    I'm applying for York, Bradford, Leeds Met, Chester and then I can not decide if to put Oxford Brookes or Anglia Ruskin as my final choice. How about you? I can't wait to go to the open days. My first one is in a couple of weeks

    hi glitter fairy.
    Im going to apply to Southampton for adult nursing aswell. Did you go to their open day??
    I was thinking of applying for dual field adult+mental health, but they said at the open day there is only 12 places on that course!!!! So im just sticking with adult as thats what im most interested in.

    Im just starting my second yr of an access course at barton peveril and have been working for nhsp at southampton general for about 6 months.
    Hi,

    Yeah I did, was a great insight into how to make your application stand out etc!

    Yeah the dual is quite tough to get into but they said if you just apply for dual and you don't get in, you will be considered for adult nursing as they have a lot more places for adult.

    Small world, just finished barton peveril and did double health and social care but now taking a gap year!

    Don't give up- one of my friends got into nursing this year with CDD, look at universities who may go on points or lower grades as you can get into nursing!

    Thank you! I was actually hoping to apply to BBB unis, it's that E that's the problem I doubt any BBB unis would actually consider me with my AS grades, which is a real shame.

    try to have loads of hands on care experience and in your personal statement demonstrate the six c's especially compassion, as compassionate attitudes to nursing is the big thing universities are looking for at the moment. Good luck x

    Hey all

    I'm applying for adult nursing 2015 for Leeds, Leeds met, York, Sheffield Hallam and Manchester.

    I've applied twice before for child and missed out because of my a level results and I've spent a year working and now I'm doing a college course.

    Very nervous I won't get in so worrying already about putting my personal statement in.

    Not got much volunteer work very hard to find for me!!

    Good luck everyone else :-)

    Hi all,

    Just wondered who is applying for Nursing for 2015?

    I'm applying for Children's Nursing @ Southampton, Bournemouth, UWE and Birmingham City!

    (Currently an Access Student)

    Hey,
    I'm going to be applying for Children's nursing
    The choices I have picked so far are-
    Bucks, Plymouth, Bournemouth and still figuring out my last two!
    If anybody is willing to give me a message so I can get an insight on day to day life being a student nurse on a children's ward then that would be amazing!
    If anybody has done children's nursing at Bucks, Plymouth and Bournemouth then it would also be nice to have a chat about so I can find out a little more about it (haven't been able to get to open days)
    Lastly what are some uni's anybody would recommend!
    Thank you!!!
