Hello!

I am starting a thread to start a discussion about how all the Nursing Applicants are getting on!

Where is everyone applying for? Any offers/interviews?

Is anyone applying to NTU?

Best of luck to everyone!

Hi
I have applied for NTU, Hartpury and RVC. I have got an interview for Nottingham and Hartputy but haven’t heard anything from RVC yet.
Has anyone else heard from RVC yet?

So I applied at NTU and got an offer for Animal Science. Not too happy, even though this isn’t my first choice. Has this happened to anyone else?

I got an offer from NTU, two interview calls from Middlesex and Harper Adams and I'm still waiting for a reply from the RVC and Edinburgh Napier. Do you know when those two usually reply?

Hiya 1st year rvc student nurse 😊 rvc release all their interview invites later than other unis after application deadline and they run through January and February so don't stress over not hearing (I had a friend apply with me and she got all her stuff earlier than I did). I applied to Edinburgh and they sent their interview out late for January/February interviews too 😊

If you have any questions about the course feel free to ask 😁

Good luck with interviews!

Hey😊 thanks for your answer it's comforting to hear.
I was actually wondering do you have placement in the first year? And if you do, since vet nursing is at the Potter's Bar campous, is your placement there or in London? How do you find transportation from and to London in terms of cost and time? 😂Sorry for the bombarding of questions.

Placement varies depending on the uni and how they lay out their courses. Rvc do theirs throughout the 3/4 years so I've just had 10 weeks teaching and tomorrow I start 10 weeks placement then I have 8 weeks teaching and then a 7 week placement block. 2nd and 3rd year are mostly placement with 1 teaching block in each. We have a nice system in place where we don't have to find our own placements so if you get a place and accept you'll get asked if the uni can share your details with the college of animal welfare (this is the exam board of teaching nursing) and then we have a lovely lady who calls up and asks about if you drive and where you want to go to do placement. Basically you can go to any vets on the country that is RCVS (royal college of veterinary surgeons) approved as a training practice. Most people choose to go home to do their placements but you can stay locally if you want- I've chosen to stay for mine which starts tomorrow. London is hard to find a place in but so usually she saves London effort for those that live in London but to stay local to potters bar your really on the edge of London (Only about 7 miles out of watford).

In terms of travelling into London its not that difficult 😁 potters bar is pretty empty so if you want to go anywhere good like on a night out or for shopping London is best! We have a shuttle bus service that runs 3 different route throughout the day to the station, tesco, and a loop goes to both. The train goes to kings cross in 2 stops and it about 20mins- if you haven't done a student bank account yet look for one that comes with a free rail card as it can take your ticket down to £5ish for return 😁

My friend is a year 1 vet nurse at Nottingham Trent and she has it differently so she'll be doing 10 weeks placement over the summer and then have the entire 3rd year on placement but other than that she's classroom based.

I think Edinburgh said they didn't do any placement until the 3rd year but could have changed for this year.

I originally choose the 12:30 session but it was full so I’m now going to the 9:30 one. Are you going to the 9:30 one as well?
