    Hi guys,

    I am going to have my nursing interview at The University of Salford for Child Nursing very soon! And I was hoping if there is anyone who has already had their interview and could tell me about:

    - Types of questions asked in the individual interview?
    - What the numeracy and literacy tests were like?

    Whether you went for Adult, Child or Mental Health Nursing interview it doesn't really matter, this would be very helpful in helping me prepare.

    Thank you in advance!

    I was in Salford for my Mental Health nursing interview on Wednesday, the interview was a lot easier than sitting in the room with everyone for the Maths and Literacy test. Genuinely. Basically, you'll be sent to a room with rows of desks rather than singular so you'll definetly be able to speak to someone beside you to calm the situatio. The english test was easy, it was 4 questions about Dementia and we were given a laminated sheet with a passage on it to go from. Yours will be similar. the maths test was.. the destroyer of all hope, however that being said I don't have my Maths GCSE- Do you?

    As for the questions asked, they'll be different for everyone, but I was asked;
    Why Salford, why mental health?
    What is the role of a mental health nurse?
    Tell me about a time you had to promote courage.
    I had 6 in total but I can't remember them right now.

    A bit of advice? Familiarise yourself with the Nursing Code of Practice and who the NAMC are, because you may be asked that.
    Good luck! X

    Oh, can you tell me about what sort of questions were on the Maths test? Like just fractions, subtractions, divisions,multiplications, additions, and percentages? I got an A in GCSE Maths, but im still worried ill do bad, aha!.. Also, did you have a group interview? Im not sure if i do, because it didnt mention a group interview on the email... Oh and how ling did you have to do the English and Maths test?

    Thanks for the tips and advice! really helped! Good luck to you too, hopefully you get a place x

    I had my adult nursing interview on Monday. For the maths test I'd say make sure you can do long division! I completely forgot and had to skip those questions.

    We had a group interview, it wasn't mentioned on my email either. But it was really fine, just discussing the 6 Cs really. So I would brush up on those.

    In the personal interview I was asked why Salford, what would I do if someone told me they weren't happy with their care, how my friends would describe me, what kind of learner I am based on my previous studies and how I think that would work with nursing.

    I had a Children's nursing interview back in January.
    Started off with the English test which was 4 or 5 questions on an article about the role of the children's nurse, then the maths test which was 30 questions on decimals, multiplications, drug calculations and percentages.
    Then we had a group interview. We were given an article on consent within the nursing code of conduct and we had to discuss the key elements of it, then each of us had to present on one of the issues we'd discussed as a group.
    Then it was the individual interview. They asked me: why Salford, why do I want to be a children's nurse, how I would deal as a student nurse with scenarios I wasn't sure of, something to do with nursing id read/heard about in the news, the importance of communication skills as a cn and how do I have those skills and lastly why they should offer me a place.


    Salford was my first interview and I was terrified but the lecturers were lovely and really keen to keep you relaxed. Just stay calm and show them why you want it and why they should pick you and youll be fine.


    On a slightly different note, has anyone had their offers from Salford for cn? Still not heard so I'm starting to freak a little....


    Aww thanks so much!! really nervous ill let you know how it goes x

    I have my interview for Children's Nursing at Salford tomorrow and I am so nervous. Are there any tips regarding keeping confident when talking with the other interviewees? Also, anything in particular you thought the interviewers were keen on talking about? :-) Thanks!

    Hey, good luck with your interview! it can be difficult in the group interview if there are loud/dominant characters - I'm a chatty person and I still found it difficult to get a word in at times! Just ensure you contribute something and show that you are listening when others are speaking, they seemed to watch responses. X
