    Just wondering if there is anyone else who is either considering or has applied for BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing for the Feb 2018 intake. Also what are people doing in terms of funding?

    So I'm a student nurse in the Feb 17' intake. Your options will be limited by the locality that you're offered after being interviewed.
    These range from Bournemouth, Poole, Salisbury, Dorchester and Yeovil.
    Halls/uni house is an option. (I gave this a go, but it was clear when i started placement that it was a poor decision).
    Moved into hospital accommodation. Cheaper, but really basic, far away from uni and really anti-social.
    It all comes down to whether you can handle long shifts, combined with the noise and disruptions of halls e.t.c.

    Good luck! I deferred last year for this Feb ! So I start Feb 2018 and staying at royal Bournemouth Hospital there’s still space for 1 more student so if you haven’t got accommodation try and apply there! X

    Hi everyone,

    I have my interview tomorrow and i am really nervous because this is a career change for me and worried that i won't be good enough or have good enough reasons for why i want to become a nurse. I am applying for the PG Dip in Adult Nursing. I am really worried that they are going to ask questions surrounding the NHS at the moment and what is going on with the world today....do you think any of that will be mentioned? Or is it just really about you and why you want to become nurse???

    I am applying for the lansdown campus

    TIA xxx

    Hey!

    Everyone keeps saying to me that it will show in the interview how passionate you are! It’s a scary process. I’m just worried about the passport photos at the moment, and I’m reading into a lot of detail and between the lines. What career are you currently in? heads up, it’s likely they’ll want to know about current issues, so maybe spend today looking into it. They will want to know also why you want to be a nurse- what drives and motivates you? If you wanna chat, just private message me. We can buddy up! .

    Good luck!

    Hello,
    Interview wise - There's a real focus on what you can bring to the role of a nurse, your reasoning for doing so e.t..c
    I don't recall discussing the current state of the NHS e.t.c.
    Having an understanding of the course such as units is a bonus. This is what i fell down on.
    Assuming the PG Dip is similar to the BSc Hons then topics cover communication, nursing theory(historical to current). Anatomy - Biology aspect and simulated skills practice, placement reflection unit, and developing professionalism.

    Hi everyone just had my interview and it went so well.

    We didn’t do a group session (not sure why) and the interview was about 15mins and they were so nice and relaxed. I won’t find out for another 2 days yet but I am very hopeful!!

    Good luck!! 😊

    So Health and Social Science related courses are all based on the Lansdowne site.
    Some courses, for example, Psychology, social workers and nutritionists have lectures at both uni sites (Talbot and Lansdowne)

    If you're referring to accommodation. Then most of the student halls are based on Lansdowne (Near Town centre)
    other than corfe house (Poole), and student village (Talbot).
    Hope this helps.

    Some advice - start with hospital accommodation and see how you get on. It's cheap (£350 compared to the cheapest halls is £500) and you're not tied into a contract.
    Then, if you're unhappy with it they can offer you a move to another flat, another block, or potentially the Abbotsbury housing complex.

    Hey sorry, just been reading your forum because I want to become a nurse and go to Bournemouth uni! I was wondering what everyone studied to get onto the adult nursing degree? I’m currently retaking my level 2 functional skills in maths and studying access to higher education in heath. And was wondering if that would be enough to get onto the course? I also have the opportunity to complete 2 & 3 in Health and Social Care (NVQ). Also, how often do they accept new students? Yearly or every 2 years or?? X
