I'm new on here and I've loved reading all the posts so far.
I'm currently in the process of applying for children's nusing for September, 2010. Any tips on personal statements would be appreciated. I've just got my previous personal tutor's agreement to write a reference for me, so now I've got to ask my current boss tomorrow.
This may sound like a bit of a dumb question, but it will help me with my second preference. What exactly is involved in learning disability branch. Does that cover things like autism and ADHD etc? Cos I'm thinking then I could still work with children if that is the case. I do need to think carefully about my second choice as I know children's branch needs the most points in interview, and I'm not great at interviews!
Would love to hear some stories about placements too: how did they go; you must all have just finished now? Where was everyone placed, what were your hours like, and did you enjoy them? Any interesting tales to tell?
