Hi! Hope it's ok for me to start this. Just wondering if anyone else will be applying for Nursing (any branch), to start in 2019, and wants to chat about the whole UCAS/personal statement/interview/offers process?

I'm applying for Adult branch at Swansea and University of South Wales.

Hopefully I will be starting in 2019 if I manage to complete my access course in time! I’m looking at applying for adult branch at Lincoln, Hull or Sheffield Hallam! So nervous about the application process! What work experience in care do you already have? x

Hi Cait

I'm in exact same boat start my access to nursing course in Sep

But I am extremely nervous about the application process, I'm fine once I know someone but I can be very shy when meeting someone new and I worry how that might come across in interview etc

My access course have told us to have a personal statement first draft done and handed in on induction day but I'm completely stuck on where to start lol

Hi all, hope you're well!

If you need advice on writing a personal statement, I recommend this advice from UCAS. I also recommend using their personal statement tool, which can help you write your first draft.

My own advice is to display your passion for the course as much as possible. This might seem really obvious, but you want the reader to know what you've done in the past to build up to this and how you'd like to take this further in the future. Right off the bat, you want the reader to see how keen you are to pursue a career in nursing. For your first few lines, I'd consider how to show your interest immediately.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Michelle

I can't wait now, getting nervous as my start date is two weeks away!

I'm the same, I freeze when I have interviews and forget everything i'm supposed to say!

Mine have too, I have been trying to make a start but I think I have read too much about personal statements that I've made it even harder for myself to even attempt to write mine! Everything I write sounds too wordy and boring hahaha!

Hi Cait

Omg I could have written your post word for word lol

I recently spoke to a friend whose a registered nurse and her advice to me was to leave the opening for a bit and write the rest i.e what we bring to the course, academics, any volunteer work and what you’ve learned from it etc and then come back to the opening paragraph at the end

I’m gonna try that this week and see how it comes along

Hi Michelle

Any progress on writing your Personal Statement?

Hey, do you have any work experience or volunteer work? Maybe write about that. I have none, so really don't know what to write really.

Hey

I am a First Aider for St John Ambulance and I am also lucky enough to have completed three hospital placements whilst completing my 90 Credit Diploma in Health and Social Care. I have a lot of notes but not a clue how to put them into a Personal Statement that is interesting to read haha.

Have you looked into transferable skills from any jobs/activities you have done?

OMG, you sorted lol.. you just need to put all that into words, sentences, and paragraphs. The ucas tool is pretty good, have a go. https://www.ucasdigital.com/widgets/...dex.html#/main

I have a draft already, at college they will help us as well so I'm waiting for it to start to talk to the teacher about it. Good luck x

I'll be applying for child nursing in 2019 at Surrey and Brighton Uni's. I've been along to their open days and I really liked what I saw so hopefully one of them will have me! I start my access course in September too, and like some others I need to take along a draft PS for the first lesson. It was really difficult to put everything in there whilst trying to convey how excited I am to study nursing plus keep it under 4000 characters, I feel like I've had to cut so much out. I'm hoping it's mostly okay and my tutor doesn't ask me to rip the whole thing up and start again. I think interviews are terrifying for most people, so if it's any help remember that you're not the only one feeling nervous and I think the people interviewing you will understand and expect that you'll be nervous.
