Hi daisy ☺️

Nobody can give you exact details of what they were asked at interviews because of fairness to other potential students awaiting interviews.

Some examples questions for you are:-
1) why do you want to be a nurse
2) why have you chosen this particular university to study nursing at
3) read over your personal statement incase asked anything about what you put in it
4) learn the NMC code of practice
5) NHS values
6) the 6 C's of nursing
7) how would you cope with a bereavement while on shift and stay professional as a nurse
8 how would you cope with stress when on duty and what would you do

Unfortunately I never went to Worcester university as went to a university in Scotland for midwifery and questions are similar.

Hi Tracey,

Thanks for for advice. I was asking about the questions because i just want to know roughy what university will ask about so i can do research for that area and I understand that each candidate will be asked differently.

For the NMC code, i find it’s quite long to remember everything. So i’m really get stuck at how to summary it.
Will they expect the candidate to answer the questions smoothly? As English is not my first language, so i’m so worry that i cannot answer fluently.

Hi daisy ☺️

You are welcome 🤗

Unfortunately nobody can give you exact things you'll be asked at the interview as generally each interview is different from the previous one to make sure nobody knows what they are asked.

I would suggest research on the things that I have mentioned in previous message .
As long as you can understand what the NMC code of practice is about then you answer the question the best way you can.

They will give the candidates some leeway on how they answer any questions asked but don't take all day ( in another way don't take to long to answer).

They will give you some leeway due to your language issues but you have to do your best to explain things. Providing you are capable of speaking some English then just do you best you can. Hopefully they will see that you are not English from your application.

No worries 🙂🙂🙂

Big congratulations to you with getting the offer for to do adult nursing.

You'll be excited but you'll be even more excited when you first put on your student nurse uniform when you finally get it and start your university course and you'll realise it's now real.

Good luck
Bro, I am very afraid to attend this interview, and I don't know how to answer these questions or how to prepare but after reading this my confidence level boosted thanks bro😊.

I was exactly the same! I was so anxious and worried about the interview process, the worst part is the build up to the interview and then when you are actually on the interview if it's online, the anxiety lessens, it's still there but it subsides due to seeing how friendly the interviewer is, they're never intimidating and they are not trying to catch you out. Then once the interview is over, the amount of serotonin you get from it is incredible. It's such an amazing feeling and accomplishment. I can see that with you being afraid, it shows you care a lot about your chosen course and the interviewer will be able to see this! If you need any help with how to answer the questions, there are a few example answers online but mostly you answer the questions using parts from your personal statement and expanding on this. I had no help from anyone at all during the build up to my interviews, but just looking online and at the universities website and guide at the interview process really helped and got me through it! It's important to remember that you have already impressed the university with your personal statement and qualifications/predicted grades so all you have to do is just be yourself. The thing they are most interested in is mainly your values and if they line up with the NHS! :smile: I know it can be so scary but it will be okay. If you need any help or anything, send me a message and I'll try and help as best as I can. There's also some great advice on the following websites:

I also found watching videos on YouTube and TikTok really useful! Here's a few for you :smile:

I completely forgot to state earlier, make sure you research a bit about the university so you are able to say why you want to study there compared to other universities, for example if they have a simulation suite or you like the unions they have to offer/experiences!

Remember to tailor your answers to your own specific experience and make sure you include any past experience you have or modules/subjects you may be studying relevant to nursing! Also make sure the interviewer knows that you understand nursing will be physically and emotionally demanding but you know you're able to and ready to take on the challenge of being a nurse and make a difference to patient's lives and their families! :smile:

I had my interview recently. It was informal and related to quite obvious things about the profession and my motivation to nurse.
I had done absolutely loads of reading and preparation, none of which I was asked about, but it helped me in terms of feeling prepared.
I have accepted an Unconditional Offer.
There’s a video on YouTube of what actually happens at the University of Worcester nursing interviews, and it was exactly like that, apart from the bit about having chance to talk to a nursing ambassador, which didn’t happen.

Congratulations on your offer! Are you applying for University of Worcester?

Yes, I’ve accepted it and am literally hysterical with excitement! I’m trying to manage my expectations by visualising being covered in a litre of diarrhoea/vomit, but I’m really happy!

Are you starting in September? I’ve got conditional offer for Adult Nursing at University of Worcester. But i’m starting in March 2025.
