    Hey!

    Just wanted to start a thread for those who have been offered a place for Nursing in September. I have applied for Children's Nursing and confirmed it as my first choice.

    I'm also curious if anyone knows of an officialKingston university Nursing group on Facebook or something?

    Hi! I've been offered a place to do children's nursing too! I've also firmed it.
    I really want to go but they've offered me a conditional place on the basis i get a B in my psychology retakes. Unfortunately, I've had a bit of a **** year so far and so that's just not going to happen.
    All i can do is hope and beg on results day!
    What about you? Are you doing your A-levels now or are you also on a gap year?

    Good luck! I hope everything goes to plan but if not remember to contact the clearing team I am sure they'll be able to sort it out!

    Hi
    I applied for children's nursing and got an offer which I have firmed. Can't wait to start but as a mature student with kids, I'm a bit worried whether I will manage it all.

    Hi
    Do look at the sample test papers you have been sent and practice them. There is not a lot you can do to prepare for the multiple mini interviews (have you bought any books on getting into nursing as some help on this aspect?), but do think through why you want to be a children's nurse, read up on what children's nursing is and what it involves (much of the care of children takes place at home not in hospitals which is often a surprise for some students). Think about what skills you have and what examples you have that show how you have demonstrated them. e.g. don't just say I am very committed instead give an example which shows how you have demonstrated commitment! But most of all just be yourself and try to enjoy the day. Remember it is chance to see if you like us as much as it is us deciding if you are right for our course!
    Good Luck!

    Hi
    please do not be nervous, it is a simple essay and nothing you wouldn't expect.
