Hi,

Has anyone else applied for the Trainee Nursing Associate role at Central Manchester Foundation Trust? Has anyone else been accepted to interview? This is the first interview I've had for a job and I'm unsure what to expect exactly. It would be great to talk to people who have also applied.

Thanks!

Hi!
Yes I had my interview last Monday but still waiting to hear from them. I've wanted to do nursing for ages but lacked the right qualifications to do the degree program. Getting really nervous for their response now!

. All seems very unorganised to me. Keep changing their minds about things! When is the enrollment date ?

Yes! Seemed to be really unorganised. The enrolment date is January 31st when the post starts so they haven't really got long to pick candidates (if they've not already decided). The interview was really informal and relaxed. I just met someone from Manchester Metropolitan University and one of the Clinical Nurse Educators. Hoping that we get to hear from them soon!

Ah! Didn't know that! I know that it's a new role and it's already created some controversy over the ability to administer medications unsupervised but that's what the training at university is for which is what is generally misunderstood. Best of luck for this intake and like you said, if unsuccessful you can try again!

Congratulations on getting the job! I'm really pleased for you! I think I might take some time out to gain work experience and then reapply to give myself the best possible chance I can. Have you worked in healthcare before? I hope your certificate turns up.

Have only ever volunteered and that wasn't for a very long time. Think I lacked the experience but I can always come back to it in the future. I currently work at Manchester Uni as a student Rep for languages so it would have been a big career change. Just always had that urge to care for others really.

Hi,

This is a new role which has been incorporated into the NHS to tackle the shortfall of nurses in hospitals. The new nursing associate apprenticeships are due to start later this year (in September) throughout a select number of universities across the country. I have noticed recently that many trusts are only recruiting internally instead of externally meaning that they will only accept applications from staff such as healthcare assistants who are already employed by the trusts.

As information on this new role is quite limited I would suggest keeping an eye on the NHS Jobs website to see if you can find suitable vacancies and maybe contact your local trust's HR department to ask about whether they are intending to start this new role in 2017.

Best of luck with your search!

Hi I've been accepted to start the course on 31st march, just wondering if anyone is already on it, to see what there views are? Are you in one fixed placement with spokes or are you on a rota like a student nurse?
