From what I gather the basis of the interviews should be the same as what I had. There's no use in giving specific questions because it might throw you off. I must have looked up for hours different questions I could be asked and had a list of answers for about 100 questions, it was completely useless and a waste of my time! Make sure you know the 6 Cs and have an idea of some key skills for nurses as they may ask you those. You might also want to prepare for any scenario based questions e.g. tell me a time when you have had to show compassion for XYZ. Don't be afraid to ask them to repeat or clarify, the interviewers were friendly and easy to talk to in my interview.

Also be aware that if you are in a group setting for any part of it to try and talk to the others, even if you aren't formally being assessed on that part I can almost guarantee they are paying attention to what is going on!

Thank you! I will definitely look into that. The scenario questions are the ones I am more worried about.

Personally I do think they're the hardest to answer, just take a second before you give your answer to collect your thoughts. I think they're the hardest to come up with on the spot, it will only be a couple questions maybe but I would try have at least some scenarios in your head that you can draw from

Hi, I'll be starting in January 22. I've been reading a lot about students struggling with workload and juggling assignments and placements, I was wondering how intense you find your course and how you deal that?

Sorry for the delayed response, I have just started placement. There's a lot of work but it is definitely manageable if you keep up with it. If you fall behind it becomes harder. Just make sure you complete stuff at the earliest opportunity and you won't have a problem!

Hi, I'd love to know how you're finding the course and BCU in general? I've applied for Speech and Language Therapy. I know it's a different course but both are healthcare so I'd love to get your views Where else did you apply to and what made you choose BCU? There is a thread in this forum saying some negative things about BCU so I'm worried about potentially making a bad choice!

I'd like to know how the placements work.

How are they assigned? What part or parts of the first year are they in? What do you need to do on the placement? How long do they last? How do the staff treat you?

Thanks
