Have you had your email to say whether you have passed your maths and english?? I was there in december for the test day, was emailed the day after saying i had passed, the invite for interview was on that email too.. i went for my interview last week, and got a conditional offer on wednesday. I hope you hear back soon x

Hello,may I ask what you think of Adult Nursing at Bolton. My wife is undecided between Bolton and Salford. The Nursing League Table for student satisfaction show Bolton next to last for the past two years, which is not a good sign.Thanks,M

Hi brlfc1969,

Firstly, thank you for reaching out. It is important that your wife has considered both options and I hope to help provide you with the information she needs to choose the best University for her.

Our BSc (Hons) Nursing/RN Adult course (https://beta.salford.ac.uk/courses/u...rsing-rn-adult) is accredited by The Nursing and Midwifery Council. It's situated within our School of Heath and Society which works closely with organisations from both the public and private sectors to ensure our teaching is at the forefront of practice. The school also has Clinical Practice Wards which are designed to give the learning space the look and feel of a hospital environment.

Hi,
I'm a 3rd year. What I can say to you is Bolton has its pros and cons just like all other universities do you have to weigh up what would be best to suit you.
Bolton has small class sizes. A set trust in which you do all your placements. from what i have experienced and heard from salford students we have more support out on placement as you get visited regular by practice educators to check on how you are doing and make sure you are up to date on things.
however the work load at university is a lot heavier than salford which generates a high amount of stress and salford find out their placement areas well in advance whereas at bolton you only find out 1 month in advance.
Hope this helps

Bolton's lectures are led by PowerPoint. Very few lecturers know how to teach. Classes are not interactive, do not support disability and completely ignore placement complaints. Yes the cohort sizes are smaller. 3 trust within each cohort which is around 90 students in total and 3 intakes a year. Support on placements has become much less than what it once was. PEFS very rarely stay in the role so there is no continuum of support. Classes are also often done in rooms without windows that are the size of most peoples living room. With the new nursing associates programme support is even more sparce that it was before. Also be prepared in your first year to be used as a free set of hands (HCA) whilst on placement as every good nurse should know the basics. Then in the second year you will be lacking in knowledge and be called incompetent in your skill. I very much doubt this post will stay for long as bolton prides itself on student satisfaction revoking any negative feedback from the forms

No, your post will stay, but they will get a student "ambassador" or someone to submit an ultra positive post.
Thanks for your honesty, it clarifies some things I have heard about quality issues there.
