    I know both these courses are in demand and I know how limited the places are.

    Do university's offer more places on the nursing course and due to this would u say its easier to get into nursing?

    I think it's definitely easier to get into nursing in the sense that there are more places and it's easier to get experience to apply for nursing. I know a lot of people that have been turned down for midwifery but I also know a lot of people turned down fr nursing too. My friend knows she will definitely not get into midwifery, because I think most unis ask for a level biology whereas nursin doesn't. So he is applying for nursing and hoping todo the two year post grad diploma in midwifery after she has graduated as a nurse. But it depends on yourself and your own application to whether you will get into midwifery or not.

    I got places for both courses so I am pretty familiar with entry to both courses. I'd agree with those who say midwifery is tougher to get into largely because there are fewer midwifery courses and places.

    I got into nursing without an interview but I had to go through two interviews for midwifery and needed hospital experience so that's another factor.

    Kingston but this was 7 years ago so it may have changed. I had a lot of experience so that may have been why.

    Most colleges (and some uni's) will advise you to do adult nursing first and post grad midwifery.

    Although adult nursing is very competitive, in comparison to midwifery, it is easier to get on to

    Where you starting? Good luck!

    I decided against doing either course and did something totally different, but a friend of mine did child nursing and she loved it.

    In my opinion I wasn't mature enough. Not to say that I was immature, but I just didn't have the right life experience and skills I felt I needed.
