    There is no harm in starting to look now, make sure you make it clear in your application when you will qualify, if they still invite you for interview then happy days.

    Also, when browsing NHS jobs, if you're not getting a lot of jobs come up on your search try leaving the "newly qualified" box unticked. Again, make it clear you'll be a newly qualified nurse (this should be pretty obvious) and see if you get shortlisted.

    I've noticed quite a few trusts are recruiting quite heavily at the moment, running open days etc. What sort of area do you want to go into when you qualify?

    I'm 5 months into my 3rd year and just received my first job offer. I know of others who got job offers months back. So I'd just start looking soon to be honest, decide what areas you are interested in and get that job interview experience.

    As above, as long as you are honest about when you are finished many places will still consider you.

    I'm in the progress of writing some job-hunting guidance. Generally about 6 months before you qualify is a good time, but some people look from the beginning of 3rd year. You'll find a lot of places won't know their vacancies until nearer the time but it's not going to hurt to make enquiries.

    I'll give you a message once it's up

    Sorry for late reply! I haven't yet had a browse on nhs jobs think I've kinda thought it was too early but it really isn't it is (eek!). I'm interested in surgical nursing....theres one ward that is mainly liver, kidneys, gastro specialised that I really like. I'm gonna keep a look out for jobs there! X
