Then you need to get a related job - any form of caring role - and reapply next year.
Nursing is as competitive as Medicine so you need to be fully committed and if you are rethinking 'can't be bothered to do that' then you have your answer.

Or you could think of another career area - many of these courses will be available in Clearing :
Childhood Development - https://www.southwales.ac.uk/courses...d-development/
Childhood Development & Psychology - https://www.staffs.ac.uk/course/psyc...evelopment-bsc
Early Childhood Studies - https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/X312/early-childhood
Early Years/Primary Teaching - https://www.edgehill.ac.uk/courses/p...tion-with-qts/

It took me 3 attempts to get a place on adult nursing, and that's less competitive than children's. I already had a previous (unrelated) degree and was working in healthcare at the time, and it took me a year and 3 attempts to get a place.

Improve your application and try again next time. Get some work in children's healthcare services and improve on your interview technique.

As said above, request feedback and reflect on it and reapply next year.

During that gap year improve your PS and stuff by getting work experience or a job in a healthcare setting.

Take heart nursing is highly competitive. On my course they interviewed nine people per place. As others have suggested ask for feedback. And someone said there are places in clearing.

I would say it's part of life being rejected for university places especially nursing courses due to high volume of applications each year.
I was rejected for adult nursing at 17,18,19,20,21 and then I reapplied at 25 and then I got offered midwifing over adult nursing and time I started I was over 26 and I'm now a registered midwife of 2 years.
Similar to what Emily said.

I was rejected at all my choices each time as I was like doing universities within local reach of my home city & house but land up going to a university 45 miles away for midwifing as there are only 3 universities in whole of my country ( part of uk ) that does midwifing. You'll need to ask for feedback, or go through clearing and if unsuccessful still try again till you get offered a place.

Where would everyone go if were all successful first time of applying because there's not enough universities to take everyone in as probably reason they have to reject candidates plus universities has limit of how many places they have to fill as well.
