    Hi! i seen you have applied to similar uni's to me! ahh, do you have any tips? im so scared, im still on personal statement
    Everyone at the interviews is really friendly! All the questions I had were quite similar so I'd say to brush up on the 6 C's and NMC values and I think they like you to be able to relate them back to experiences you have had. With Kingston make sure you revise the maths and english papers they give you, loads of people failed it and didn't get through to interview! Long division, multiplication and converting kg mg-g, ml-L have come up in every test so I'd swat up on those. Good luck!

    The Kings college test is the hardest I've come across!
    Just google sample nursing numeracy questions and tons of tests from universities pop up! In my experience they always ask similar questions. Metric conversions of weight and fluid (i.e. mg-g and ml-l), fractions to percentages and vice versa, long division and multiplication. Just general numeracy really, found the maths is fun website really useful to help brush up on some bits. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Hi guys!!
    I love that I found this forum
    Branch: Adult nursing

    Experience: Care home for 3 years, HCA 6 months, rehabilitation support worker 6 months. Currently working in a mental health unit where I have been working for 3 months.
    Bournemouth and Brighton haver both invited me for interviews In December.

    Has anyone heard back from Southampton? I've only had an acknowledgement. I applied 3 weeks ago.

    Also I'm supposed to have my Plymouth interview tomorrow at 9. I requested a change of date a week ago but they still haven't gotten back to me, I'm worried they'll be expecting me tomorrow
    I am still awaiting to hear back from Southampton. I sent my application about 2 weeks ago. Im sooo eager for them to get back to me!!
    What field have you applied for?
    I do have an interviews for Brighton on Wednesday 16th December and Bournemouth on Thursday 17th December. Anyone else attending interviews on these dates.

    Also....

    GOOD LUCK

    Hello,

    I am just wondering if anyone has been for an adult nursing interview at UCLAN and could tell me a bit about what the English exam part of the test day entails? pretty much panicking about tomorrow.

    Thankyou...

    Hi everyone,

    I've applied for adult nursing at Southampton, Surrey, Plymouth, Swansea and Nottingham.

    I am currently doing A2 level Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics, and Applied Business Studies.

    I am volunteering at the local hospital at the moment for 6 months, I've also done some work in a charity shop over 1 summer and I'm also a Girlguide who helps out once a week with the rainbows. Some of you have some great experience!

    I sent off my application a day ago and I am already nervous that I won't hear back/get declined. I am also nervous about the MMI interviews (if I got one) too as I feel I may say the wrong thing if they ask me something unexpected.

    Thanks for reading.

    Good luck future nurses!

    Hi tashymoo98,

    Work experience is always great- there's a little bit here about enhancing your application

    https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools/s...ur-application

    also, have a look at the course requirements as a general idea of what you need- https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/u...-nursing-adult

    Good luck with your application!

    I've applied for Cumbria as well and not heard anything back. I did go to an open day and at the nursing talk I went to they said they start interviews in January so it's completely normal we haven't heard from them yet.
    I received an interview invite from them on Monday for next Wednesday so maybe they've decided to start them early or something?? Have you applied to Cumbria aswell??
