    Hey! I'm a third year nursing student at bucks so can give you a quick rundown..

    If you live in Uxbridge, you have a 2-15 minute walk to uni depending on whereabouts you live in and around uxbridge. Quite convenient and saves you money/time spent travelling, but a walk either way.. There's no campus so you can feel sort of excluded from 'normal' uni life at times..

    Uxb is generally better if you're on placement locally as the underground station and bus station are quite central to most surrounding areas.

    However, you get more for your money in terms of housing in HW - generally bigger rooms for less money, and theres more of a 'uni feel' with the SU bar etc. - you'll probably have a lot more fun there.
    There is a campus link bus that goes both two and from the campus free of charge on the hour, but can be quite busy at peak time on uni days.

    If you have any more questions feel free to ask

    Hey! I haven't done an ethics essay as it wasn't part of my curriculum, but I know a hot topic with loads of further reading is 'do not attempt resuscitation' as there are lots of ethics surrounding that, maybe do it in terms of children/cancer etc? Hope that helps xx

    I'm a bit worried that my personal statement isn't good enough. I've written lots of stuff that is relevant to nursing and I've stated why I want to do nursing but not paediatrics in specific The only experience I've had is a week in a hospital and working in a children's amusement park for two summers. Compared to other applicants I just feel as if I'm not good enough!

    I've applied to Manchester, Queen's Belfast, Northumbria, Surrey and Edinburgh Napier! I sent off my UCAS off a week and a half ago on Friday and still haven't heard anything.

    Does anyone have any advice?
