    I've just submitted my UCAS for child nursing 2014 and Sheffield Hallam is one of my options. Is there accommodation where mainly NHS students go or does it seem to be mixed?

    Thank you for your post! I'm thinking of doing mental health nursing- it looks so interesting. Are you enjoying it? I'm currently doing an access course to nursing which is psychology and biology. love the psychology... not so much the biology! how much biology study is involved in the mental heath degree? is it much less focused on biology than the other nursing degrees? I really hope so because I'm not enjoying it very much! psychology is much more my thing. Also EVERYONE tries to put me off this degree, saying it is better to take adult nursing and then specialize. I can see why that makes sense, but I'm sure mental health nursing is for me! did you get the same thing? Mental health nursing doesn't seem to be very popular... not sure why as I think it looks great. Thanks :-) x

    There is biology, but it's very basic. I've not done science in years and I understand it. And I don't know where you heard this but you can't pick adult and then specialise, you have to do one or the other. If you want to do mental health nursing then definitely go for it! You can switch sometimes in the first few weeks if you don't like it and would prefer adult. The first year is 50/50 general to mental health, the second is 75/25 mental health to general. Hope this answered your questions!

    Hi, I am thinking of applying for mental health nursing in 2015. I just wanted to know the course is like; what are you currently doing, grade requirements and is it worth doing as a degree.

    Hi!
    Currently we are doing a lot of biology and all the essential boring things. However once they're out the way and you're learning your branch, it's a really good course. It is VERY adult based on the beginning though. The grade requirements are 280 points. And yes it is worth doing

    Hi Matty!

    I have an interview coming up for MH nursing (at Teesside). Any tips you can give me?

    Also, do you know what kind of places you'll be doing your MH placements in yet?

    Thanks,
    Ashley

    Way to revive a 3 year old thread!

    I had a mental health nursing selection day earlier this year. We did team discussions and then individual interviews. Everyone was really friendly. Just be yourself and let them know how you have prepared for nursing, why you want to do it and why you are right for it. Good luck.

    I wanted to ask for nursing, Are Unis lenient in terms of accepting you into the uni if you are short on the entry requirements. I applied for learning disability nursing at hull and the offer is 280ucas points. I don't feel like I can achieve that because my chemistry is really hard. Do you know whether they can be lenient of students if they r short. (Any uni not just hull )
