    Useful Info/Links for 2015 Nursing and Midwifery Applicants

    You can find other Nursing and Midwifery applicants on TSR using Connect - this lets you find out not only who else has applied but if they've had interviews/offers and where they have accepted.

    There are threads for each branch of nursing and midwifery:

    Adult Nursing Applicants

    Childrens Nursing Applicants

    Learning Disability Nursing Applicants

    Mental Health Nursing Applicants

    Midwifery Applicants

    If you want to find out more about specific universities then you can find your own university on this list of all university forums. There you can find help from other applicants and students on all courses, information about accommodation and how to apply and lots of other handy resources.

    Lastly check out the "Useful Resources" box on the right hand side of the Nursing and Midwifery forum - this has links to resources including personal statements and where on TSR to look for help with Student Finance and NHS Bursaries.

    Hiya
    1) I did a-levels before my course however my subject choices do shock some people as i did a level business studies, economics and psychology, and as politics.
    2) the only experience i had was volunteering at a school for children with physical and behavioural difficulties, which i thought would disadvantage me but didnt!!
    3) Being completely honest, it is hard work and very different to most other courses in terms of hours at uni and placement,however, all the stress and hours are defo worth it
    4) dont use the phrase ' ive wanted to do it all my life' as that puts most unis off. If you don't have much experience (like me) talk about the skills you have acquired from your studies and any part time job, work experience, volunteer work and how this is transferrable to being a children's nurse. Be honest about your experience, as they will ask about it at interviews and ask what you learnt from it.

    Good luck, pm me if you have any more questions x

    Hi

    it's best not to worry too much and just go for it! As long as you have a passion for nursing and make it show you should do fine well most unis will ask for some sort of experience in a health and social care setting. I'd say for child branch try and get experience in primary and secondary schools, or nurseries or a hospital of some sorts if you can! If not, a care home or something along those lines. They will appreciate hospital experience is very difficult to get so don't worry too much! Just remember to talk and reflect on all your experiences in your PS!!!
    In terms of interview, read up on stuff in the nursing times and health care news on BBC news website ect and talk about that as it's good to show you have an interest in current nursing topics! Other than that, just come across passionate! Let other people talk if you are In a group interview but on the other hand don't let you be overshadowed! It's best to nod and give eye contact and agree and disagree with comments! But most of all as long as you dress smart and come across passionate about nursing and talk about your experiences you will be fine

    Good luck and if you need any more advice or support just ask!

    Thanks I'm a bit shy and did have interviews for adult nursing but didn't get an offer but now I'm growing as a person and I'm trying to improve my confidence more

    I've applied to help in the hospital and to help in the shop

    Applied and looking for work experience in children's hospital Manchester Birmingham and Salford

    I live in north wales

    I've also contacted my local primary school to see if I can either help in the breakfasts club and after school clubs

    I've had work experience in the hospital

    But because of reasons I can't explain I've been in a coma you see and when I came round and started recovering I was talking to some nurses and they said never do adult nursing it's the worst thing you can ever do and I've always wanted to be a childrens nurse but because of limited spaces I chose adult .....so really I want to give something back to them something I can say well no words can explain basically so yeah

    I need to get in - do I need to do an access course or not ?? I've just done and finished my a levels

    Welsh bac - A
    Health and social double - BC
    Applied science - D
    Religious education - D

    People are doing loads of access to health I could do one in my college but they're saying it's a waste of money


    I also help and volunteer at at johns ambulance and I'm joining the Red Cross

    Please can you help me with anything else x
