    Hello everyone, I have an interview at BCU on Monday for Child Nursing starting October 15. Just wondering whether anyone has any tips on passed interview for Child Nursing at BCU so I know what to expect? Also is anyone else having an interview Monday? Would be great to know somebody before I went
    Thank you

    Hey, it went well. It was quite stressful and I was very very nervous! But overall it wasn't as bad as I thought. I only had 6 interview questions from 2 interviewers. I also had to answer questions recorded on an IPad off children in hospital. My advice would be to just be yourself and listen to the questions they ask you - they really do just want to know about you and want you to do the best you can. Hope this helps and feel free to ask me anything else

    The children were about 15 on all 3 of the ones I had, they asked me about their privacy and what I would do to make them feel less nervous whilst in hospital x

    Hi! I had my interview at bcu last week, just wanted to ask you how long your responses were on the ipad?
    I know we had 90 seconds but I felt like mine were too short. Something that is really bugging me!

    Don't worry about it I think they just wanted to see that you weren't gonna brush the kids off and ignore them where else have you applied?

    Have you already had your selection tests at wolves then? I'll be there monday too but for the entry tests. What time are you due in?

    The ipad thing stressed me out too! I thought the interview was okay, although the more I think about it the more I realised I could have said more!

    Have you had staffs interview yet? X

    Well I've had an email inviting me for my selection test but I wasn't sure whether there was an interview as well or whether it was seperate? Have you got your maths and English on Monday that's what I've got I think?
    I'm definitely the same I keep thinking of things I could of said but I was more nervous than I realised! I haven't heard anything off staffs yet have you? X

    How long did you wait before you started receiving interviews after your application was sent off?

    I received my selection test from Wolves in December about 2 weeks after I sent it off and my BCU interview about 2 weeks ago.
