    Hi all, I have an interview for Nursing in Northumbria on the 1st Feb and am stressing for the group interview as they only pick 1 or 2 out of the 4. I wanted to know if anyone has any tips for this interview process? I'd be ever so grateful!

    Hi there. I saw this on an unanswered thread board and thought I may be able to help. Although not from Northumbria, we offer Adult Nursing at QMU so I have some knowledge from that process I could impart
    If you've not already, you may also want to post something on the Northumbria forums directly: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=780

    What we are mainly looking for is to ensure the person/people we are selecting fit the 'good health and good character' criteria set our by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). So we want to ensure the skills required to be a Nurse are shown (communication, empathy, ability to deal with difficult situations etc.). We conduct a group interview session where candidates will be observed to assess things like communication, team working etc. You may also have an individual 1:1 part where they may ask about experiences from the personal statement.

    I often advise people to re-read their personal statement before going along - remind yourself what you said you've done! Refresh your memory so you don't go in and have a complete blank. The main part though, it to get a sense of who you are and will you fit well into the program - so just be yourself!

    Best of luck with the applications!
