    I've been offered a place on Child Nursing for 2017 - I'm really happy that I've got an offer but a bit deflated that I may have to wait until next year.

    Has anyone else been offered 2017 start?

    I have a January 2017 start however I asked to start in 2017 due to personal circumstances. I know it may seem a let down that you have to wait a year but if this is the career you want a year isn't a long time to wait, if you use the time wisely to do all the things you want to do but won't get a chance to do whilst your at uni I bet you will be glad to be given the opportunity to do it.

    Hi everyone, I started adult nursing last year and just wanted to offer some survival tips

    - remember to wear warm clothes on placements because the hospitals can be freezing!

    -Create formula posters and display them everywhere as soon as possible

    -Choose accommodation wisely - I found that central halls although was close to the uni was miles away from the hospital, even though you are first years definitely look into private accommodation that is in the middle of both the hospital and the uni. Try 1st Degree Student Accommodation who I found somewhere with as they have a property right in the middle with en-suite rooms and internet all for £80.00 a week including all bills an internet. A great bonus about this house is that they only house nursing students in it which is advantage as we all understand each others needs and can pick each other's brains for knowledge. 1st Degree also do special offers for NHS students which is a great help because the bursary is often a struggle I find.

    I applied for September 2016 start but was offered January 2017 start

    I'm moving to the area in September with my partner which means now I'll need to get a bar job or something until January.

    Glad I'm not the only one that didn't get the date they asked for!
