    Basically I booked a holiday wayyy before I even applied for nursing...I've literally only just realised that it's the 3rd week of my course it's only a week though. That particular week the
    Hours are only small like 9-11, 1-4 etc....so I'm not missing full days but I'm worried theyl kick me off the course. I emailed the programme leader and said I had it booked before i applied and I just didn't realise till now! I'm worrying like mad

    They won't kick you out. However, they're not obligated to give you the time off. The NMC dictates a certain amount of theory time and placement time and having a week off during term could affect your ability to reach this target. It may be that you have to cancel the holiday if thats possible.

    It's not really possible no my kids have waited a long time and I've already paid for it so I'd lose all my money. So basically every hour of theory I miss I have to make up?....could I do that with placement?

    No, because you have a separate quota for placement.
    There does tend to be a bit of a contingency with hours, so there may be a bit of leeway, but no one apart from UCLAN will be able to tell you whether or not its possible I'm afraid.

    You have to make it up if you go over a certain amount of days, but I think theory time can be made it in form of an assignment up to a point (after that and you might end up having to intercalate/back cohort) but for placement you get given a make up placement. If you won't move the holiday, then request a move to march intake?

    You might get away with it, but you'd have to be careful about missing any further uni (sickness/childcare issues etc). Like I said, the best people to tell you are UCLAN themselves.

    Well there's some days built in to miss, but if you end up over that then yes you d get a short essay to do at the end of the year. however if in that week they d started mandatory training then you d have to make up for that before placement 1.

    I suspect you'll be fine. The 2,300 theory hours includes 'self study' and I know for a fact that hardly anyone does the number of hours that we're supposed to do! Missing 'skills' is a bit more problematic, but not unsurmountable. Enjoy your holiday with your kids.

    I don't think it will matter too much so long as you don't have any mandatory sessions that week. If you do though, you might be able to arrange to attend them the week before or after if another group has theirs timetabled for another day
