Hello @Cottoncandypuffs

I hope you're well! I hope you get a response to this, as quite important questions but you might also find it useful to post in the Anglia Ruskin university forum which can be found here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=858

Hi there,
I am a year two adult nursing student based on the Peterborough campus.

The application process for dual courses is the same as the single route. You can apply through UCAS or clearing via this page https://www.aru.ac.uk/study/apply-online?route=U1252&clearing=true . If successful you will be invited to attend an interview as part of the NMC requirements. If successful at the interview and offered a place this will be subject to you completing a satisfactory DBS and health check with occupational health.

During the interview, you will be asked questions about yourself, your experience, and scenario-based questions. Make sure you read up on the nursing 6c's, the nursing code and the NHS constitution. The interviews are friendly and relaxed so not need to be nervous just be yourself.
During the first year you will be focusing on the fundamentals of nursing and joining both adult and mental health route nurses. In year two and three you will alternate with adult nursing and then mental health. In the 4th year you will focus on leadership and becoming an independent practitioner. As for the timetable you will have a block of theory and blocks on placement over the four years. During placement you will be expected to work 40 hours per week over a seven day 24 hour period. During theory this can be either 2-3 days in university and will consist of lectures and clinical skills.

If you would like further information about the course please see this link https://www.aru.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/nursing-adult-and-mental-health#applynow_panel

Hope this helps and good luck.
