    I'm very worried.

    Looking at everyone's elses experience makes me scared
    Don't be worried! I didn't have a whole lot of experience either. I had worked with elderly care and done a few children's after school clubs/summer camps but I had no clinical experience with children. They are much more interested in the type of person you are, your qualities and they don't expect you to be a great nurse now because you haven't even started, they look for what you could be! I worried myself silly looking at all the people who had done 'gap medic', loads of hospital placements etc etc but I still got an offer from my first choice uni (and my second) so stay positive and confident in yourself xx

    Hey guys! I'm new, I've just sent off my application. Don't know when I'll get any kind of communication from them until February! (I'm so impatient) 😂

    Branch: children's nursing

    Universities applied for: (in order)
    Kings College London
    University of Greenwich (avery hill)
    University of Worcester
    University of Surrey
    University of Brighton

    Experience: I worked in a pre-school for 6 months, also have worked closely with a childminding business. Hopefully getting future work either in a care home (just for experience) or locally there is a learning disability school I might apply there for voluntary work! I've also been in care and looked after all my siblings, taking on a motherly role (I'm 17 btw) and so it's all transferrable skills I guess!

    It's nice to hear from everyone else! Keep updating!

    -Kirsty x

    So jealous of everyone getting interviews already! Ucas will probably be closed by the time my boss decides to send me my reference
    Over here me too, I think my tutor is taking her time, I've sent her a request from UCAS like thousand times and even emailed her saying ASAP but I'm not sure if she understands English at all.

    Hey guys,
    I'm applying for Adult Nursing in the following uni's;
    City University London
    University of Hertfordshire
    London South Bank University (not sure about this one!)
    Anglia Ruskin (Chelmsford campus)
    Buckinghamshire (Luton)

    So I've heard that sending off your application early (like REALLY early, November-ish) can increase the chance of getting an offer, in particular, unconditional offers. Is this true? Has anyone sent off their application already or planning to send it soon?

    Hey, I'm applying for Adult nursing at University of Liverpool, University of Manchester, and Edge Hill University. I have a BSc degree in biomedical science but I've recently had a change of heart about my career and now I'm set on Nursing
    I haven't got much healthcare experience though (I'm starting voluntary work in a local hospice tomorrow)... Looking at the experience others seem to have on this thread, I'm starting to worry

    I have applied for Adult Nursing following my first degree BSc Hons Public Health Nutrition.

    I too have no healthcare experience - I've been to quite a few open days already and all have said that healthcare experience is not necessary, I think your work experience in the hospice will be plenty enough I too am waiting to start some voluntary work on a hospital ward so hoping that will boost my application as I've mentioned it in my personal statement

    I got rejected from Kingston today. (Child PgDip so don't panic undergrads!)

    Not sure of the reason, hoping to get some feedback tomorrow. I think it might be where I started Adult Nursing before a few years ago but fingers crossed not everyone sees that as a negative!

    Hi,
    I'm applying for Manchester, Manchester met, Sheffield, Kings and Leeds. My A- levels are psychology, sociology and health and social care. I did GCSE science last year in college but failed with a D. However, I have a applied BTEC from high school but they were very crafty and sly as they would always drill in our heads "BTEC is basically considered a GCSE" Which yeah it is an equivalent but they prefer the real thing. I was just wondering if universities would accept me if I don't have my science, I did really well in all my AS with A in socio and B psy. And dist* in H&S. Also people have said because I'm male I would get in and no it wasn't just fellow student but also teachers but they don't know I failed science. I know how important it is but I understand biology and how the body works one of the health and social units this year is anatomy and physiology which I've put on UCAS. If you could just answer my two questions.
    Will they take it as bad not having the C for science?
    And do they actually Favor males more for a balanced ratio?
    Thanks

    Hey,

    There are some universities that don't actually require a GCSE Science as myself don't have the GCSE science but instead got a Level 2 OCR Science and most of the Uni's told me that they will take this into consideration. As long as you have other related back up subjects related to the course which you do have with fairly good grades So you should be alright but just to be sure email the Uni's with your grades and everything and ask them if you're gonna meet the requirements.

    For the other question, Im not too sure but thinking about it now I think they do because there aren't many males who applies for nursing so they might take you as the one with 'confident with your career' kind of thing. Does that make sense, hope that made sense.

    Thank you for the reply yeah I seen that on some of the requirements like on MMU you need science but if you do health and social care lvl 3 they only need engl+maths. University of Manchester also don't mention science. I will email them before this week thanks for the advice and I know at first I thought about the male thing but ill just have to wait and see if they take me into consideration like you said.
