Difference between September intake and Spring intakeWatch
I understand that many universities have a second entrance point for nursing, around February/March because it has such a high drop out rate. What's the difference between starting Adult Nursing in September and starting it in Spring?
Is the course the same but it's more compressed if you gain entry later on or is it an entirely different style of teaching, learning and placements?
After a lot of hassle with trying to change my university course, I'm hoping to get in for February and am just curious to know.
And yeah, my year starts in january, ends in december..I have exactly the same lectures, in the same order than the september intake, just 3 months behind

teaching, learning and placements will be very similar except of course you are 5 -6 months in time 'behind' the september intake thus spreading the load on placement areas
zippyRN, I now know I got the reasoning wrong, sorry.
How does the academic year work for spring intake like would you still be in class/placement when everyone else would be on their summer holidays?
