    Do we choose our nursing specialism/branch in our work/practical placement on the nursing degree course? Eg. If I want to specialise in Oncology, do I get to work in Oncology on the placement?

    I've put in an application for a nursing course for September.

    Depends on the uni but, you can request specific areas youd like a placement in, but the unis will just place you where there are spaces, alot of unis have management elective placements which is the last one before qualifying and choosing an area where you want to specialise is usually what students do then making it an easier transistion from student to staff nurse.

    You do several placements covering a lot of different specialities depending on the branch you have chosen. Some places allow you to chose an elective like the poster above me said, however other places do not. When I trained my uni allowed people to swap placements to get ones they wanted with other students, however the placement had to be appropriate for the module it was linked to so that students could meet their learning outcomes for that module.
