    Hi Sarah,

    So as you know I have an offer at London South Bank University. BSc Adult Nursing (Havering Campus) September 2017 intake

    I applied for my DBS online I found the link directly on their website
    [/b]

    Please visit: [/b]

    I took my ID documents to the Havering Campus that's the campus I applied for. I took my passport, driving licence and council tax letter, they scanned and sent it straight to DBS who have now received my application, the DBS team emailed me a couple of days later to confirm they had received my application it does take 60 days to receive the certificate so I would urge you to get yours completed now. I also have 11 weeks until I start university so I want to be well prepared. My start date is 18/09/2017

    I also completed the occupational health questionnaire online, I received a phone call from the occupational health team yesterday they wanted to clarify the details on my form, I should now receive an email from them between now and August with an appointment. I was also required to get my GP or practice nurse to complete my vaccination history on a form also found online, I made an appointment to see the practice nurse they only had a list of 2 vaccinations given on the system so I'll need a blood test at my occupational health appointment to determine which diseases I'm immune to if I need booster they will give them to me free of charge.

    OH:
    [/b]

    In terms of the head start day, our course leader ran through the DBS process and occupational health, the librarians talked us through referencing and study skills. There are also study skills workshops coming up at both campuses, have you received an email yet? I am yet to book, need to query some dates first. It's a great way to prepare us for what's to come and to find out the services and support available while we're there.

    Check out the lsbu website for full instructions and guidance before applying, hope this helped
    Hi Thanks,

    I had already done the on-line DBS check and have applied for my replacement passport, so hopefully I won't have to wait too long for the passport to arrive, it came within 2 weeks last time. I did the online OH form and when I submitted it it said it was the old form and no longer in use! I had to click on a link to be take to the 2017 form and fill it all in again!! so annoying, but at least it is done now, I will take my vaccination form to my GP surgery next week.
    I haven't received anything about study skills workshops, i received an email saying that I can use the library for reading but not loaning, but thats all. It maybe that your offer is unconditional, whereas mine is conditional? I don't think the results from my course get sent to them for a few weeks. I will look into the study skills workshops though, I have done uni before though so may not need to go.

    Thanks again for getting back to me with all of this info x

    Hi they are asking about APL (Acceditation of Prior Learning) this is for the PGDip as they already have a degree and just need to meet the NMC requirements to cut their course short from 3 to 2 years.

    There will be about 60-70 students on this programme this year.

    Hi,

    I submitted mine and just making a few minor amendments to it now.

    It took a lot longer than I expected - particularly the Life Science Workbook. But I am really glad that I had to do it. I don't have any A-levels etc on the sciences and taking the time now to learn basic human anatomy and physiology will mean I won't be so far behind when I start in September.

    Nurseteacher - do you know if they 'mark' the Life Science workbook as such?Would be nice if they did give feedback!

    Hi,

    I know the course director is currently going through the APL claims. I am not 100% sure if they give a mark, however I will check and get back to you.

    I have checked and we do not actually provide a mark for the workbook. The CD will go through it to ensure that it is completed to the correct standard.

    If it is not, they will get in contact with applicants and provide them with feedback on how they can put it right and improve their submission.

    If it is not completed properly applicants are also informed. Therefore if you hear nothing you have done well.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Nurseteacher, for adult nursing, do you know the times lectures are likely to end? I am trying to sort out my childcare for university since it takes a good 2 months, I need to give myself some leeway from the time lectures end to picking up my children. Thanks so much in advance

    It's even gonna be more complicated when placements start since no one knows where we will be placed and what times we are expected to be there, guess I need a head start to give me enough time to identify issues early on.

    Have a great weekend also

    The course will be full on so I would plan to finish classes around 4- 4.30. As you are at Havering you will be placed at either Queens hospital or King George's in Romford

    Early shift usually start about 0700 and later around 1300, long days usually from 0700-2000. However different clinical areas do different shifts but this will give you an idea.

    Regards

    Hi
    Unfortunately in most cases when on clinical placements you will work on bank holidays. The uni is closed bank holidays so if you are in class you will have day off.

    In some placements they are mon-fri and are closed bank holidays therefore you will not have to go, however as you have to complete a minimum if 2300 clinical hours you will need to make up at least 7.5 hours for each bank holiday.
    I hope this helps
