    Hey, jus wondering if anyone could help me, either by telling me good websites to go to or just generally helping me with what to write.

    I have an interview at Uni on Tuesday and during my interview i have to do a 30 minute essay, the title is as follows:

    Being a Children's nurse requires many special qualities and skills. Discuss these in relation to caring for a sick child and their family in hospital.

    I have to discuss the positive and negative aspects.

    Please reply asap, thanx you xxx

    is this an interview for nursing then..?

    well, presumably you know why you'd want to be one..so link qualities you think you have with those necessary to be a children's nurse..

    maybe check some websites that have nursing courses & see what qualities they think you need for the course? or look up NHS info about nursing?

    i'd say what i thought.. but the point of this is to get your thoughts as a framework for the interview i think..so it would be pointless..

    For weaknesses i guess you should discuss the barriers. For example what if a child only could speak one language that you cant speak. this will limit your skills. Also religion and cultural reasons why someone may not want you to provide a care service. Gender differences may be misunderstood. You can resolve this by working in a professional manner where you would be meeting his or her needs to provide the outcome of care they want. Think about your communication skills. What could you bring to a group of children. Speak about your skills you would have learnt in other relevant courses you have studied. What about placements you have had working with children. Making sure your aware of your clients and provide / show the following qualities such as respect, behaviour, dignity and working in an ethical framework.

    Hope that helps. My mate did something similar for social work.

    You need to be self aware and very interested in people's behaviour. The ability to remain non-judgemental and objective is an important aspect of the role. You will need to be sensitive and tolerant when caring for clients and their families.

    If i think of anything more that i will get back.
