I have applied for the post grad diploma in nursing (mental health)
I have an interivew in a few weeks but befor I attend this I have to fill out an APEL claim for to show evidence that I have the experience to study at post grad level.
I already have a degree in Criminology and Sociology and have spent the past two years working in care both nursing and residential, I am now the deputy manager of a care home so with most of the form I have found it quite easy to provide evidence. However, there are a few questions I am stuck on and could do with any help that anyone can offer. I know most of them can relate to my degree but I have just had a brain freeze and keep staring at the questions and not knowing what to put.
I need to show that:
I am able to demonstate understanding of biological and physiological sciences
I am able to demonstate understanding of social and behavioural science
I am able to demonstrate undersing of ethics, law and understanding
I have participated in quality assurance and risk management strategies
Apologises for any spelling errors and if i have waffled on but it's driving me mad
Thanks in advance

your degree sounds like it could be used to show most of those points. Have you a copy of any essays you did on your degree course? or any of the unit handbooks? A degree is Sociology and Criminology must have gone into some social and behavioural science. as well as law and ethics.
Working in a care home have you come across risk assesments with the people living there? I thought each patient had to have a regular risk assesments for falls and things? or performed any audits?
As for the biological and physical sciences did you do any science A-Levels or GCSE's?
These APEL things are a pain in the arse to fill out. Im on a postgrad nursing course and i am still being asked to do some more work on it!
