I hope it goes okay I am gonna aim to get my application in by November by the latest for this year. I do not want to post it later say in January because of February intakes for some of the course but I have got it all sorted just waiting for someone to spell check and grammar check my personal statement and all I need to put in is my qualifications and employment history and the pay the money and it should be done. I am also gonna sort out my maths this month and have plan a and b for just in case I don't pass.

Hiya guys...
I'm thinking of applying for MH Nursing Sept 2014 intake but I'm wondering what my chances are of getting in. I don't have any clinical experience but I do have a non-related part time job where I have picked up loads of transferable skills. I am going to be 18 and j know that this particular course has a lot of mature students on it, so will they think I'm 'too young' to get on the course? However I do get mostly A's and B's in my A Level exams. What do you guys think? Am I at a disadvantage? I am thinking of maybe doing another degree instead and maybe come back to Nursing after I have finished it so I am older and hopefully more experienced as I will look for clinical experience etc. Can anyone give me any advice?

Hey guys!
im starting my access course in 2 weeks, followed by applying for uni this September for the September 2014 cohort(mental health nursing). My choices are (in this particular order); UWE, Cardiff, KCL, Southampton, and Edge Hill(I like the prospect of a placement at Ashworth MSH). I'm overly excited about the whole thing, and I can't wait to get applying!

im applying september 2014, going straight from sixth form. i've never really worried about my age haha but when i went on the open days at uni most of the students there were all quite young anyway (18/19) so i wouldn't worry about how mature you are

That makes me feel a lot better! Thanks for this reply! Which open days were these? And what Uni's are you thinking of applying for, for what branch of Nursing, may I ask?

I'm applying for sept 2014 entry I didn't do well in my ALevels (210 ucas) so I'm starting a BTEC level 3 health and social care diploma fast track to get my points up (thought I'd tell you that just incase anyone is in the same boat as me?!) I plan to apply for York, Huddersfield, Birmingham City, Hull and Manchester - in order of preference

To those worried about age, many people go straight from 6th form college, unis just ask that you have some experience or shadowing in a caring role + meet their entry requirements

Thanks for the info! Just wanted to ask, what if you don't have any experience in care in hospital environments etc? The only experience I have is caring for younger brothers etc. Would that count as experience? What type of experience do you have?

Another applicant here! o/
I'm probably applying for York, UEA, Cumbria, Northumbria and Leeds. Worried about work experience though. Serious question, would being in an inpatient unit myself count?

Edit: What are everybody's GCSEs like?

Nice! Do you have any experience in the field at all? And do you think it's necessary to have it?

I'm also worried about the work experience. Do you have any? My GCSE's and A Levels seem to meet the entry requirements though which is slightly comforting. Are you doing your A Levels?

PS: were you in an inpatient unit? You can always write about how caring the nurses were to you made you realise that you also want to make that kind of positive impact on someone's life etc

That's good experience to have but some universities say that you HAVE to have experience in a hospital or caring environment. I'd just check the entry requirements as that's where it says if its required And I have experience shadowing a senior mental health nurse in a hospital and have also volunteered in a day centre for adults with learning disabilities Hope that helps!
