    Such a problem with adults returning to education. Far too many of my work Colleagues really struggle with sorting work out around childcare (most have to rely on their parents/friends) never mind going back to study as well!

    I'm good thank you. I'm not sure if I told you, but I was worried about how I was going to accommodate College around work. Spoke with my Manager on Wednesday and she said that I could reduce my hours down to part-time. Actually works in her favour as she can open up x2 full-time posts with the reduction in my hours. Just have to let her know my timetable (getting this in two weeks time at a pre-enrolment thing) and she can start the paperwork. So that's a MASSIVE relief as I am settling in so much on the Ward. Such a lovely bunch of people that I didn't want to leave. I had also just applied for a part-time post on another Ward at the Hospital and had got an interview for that. I got told this after I had spoke to my Manager, so I've withdrew my application now.

    To get an interview. The longest I've ever had to wait for a decision after the interview was 7 weeks

    It's just grim that it's a long process for it all. Literally nothing worse than waiting.
    How did the interviews go? Any advice (In hope that I get one)

    Just be yourself and don't show your nerves. Make sure you know the role of a nurse like the back of your hand,know some recent healthcare topics,practise maths and English tests.

    I'm working in a role which works very closely with a nurse so I hope that bit should be fine!
    I hope these interviews go better for you too!
