Hi all.
I am currently a staff nurse on maternity leave and I have been very lucky, I have managed to get an interview for a Student Health Visitor Post tomorrow. Has anyone any advice they can give me for the actual interview? I am stressing as it is something I have wanted to do for a long time! I have send by little man over to his nans this afternoon so I can concentrate, I have just been getting more stressed as the day goes on. I have been preparing for the interview for some time but I'm worried my nerves will ruin it for me! Any advice or tips would be great. Thank you.

Hi everyone,
These posts have been so helpful. I have found out that i have an interview for huddersfield uni in May and im soo scared sad
It says the interview consists of a seen written paper.. which has confused me a little what does that mean?? and a group interview.
But then with this group interview do they ask you individual questions ??
The paper is on
Discuss the Public Health Nurse’s role in promoting the health of teenage mothers.
- Assessing health needs
- Health promotion strategies
- Public health policy
I dont really know how much im am meant to write
Anyone have any ideas pleassseee help

Kazlar- Nope! Still waiting and it's driving me insane. I'm checking my account every 5 mins. If its a no I wish they would have told me last week. Considering I was told Friday and you the beginning of the week I thought it would was definitely going to be today x

kazlar Tue 23-Apr-13 18:04:34

Mummyh003, I know it's driving me mad aswell, we are on holiday in Cornwall and phone reception has not been great, so been panicking!! I suppose it takes them a while to sort everything out, but definitely thought we would hear by today! Lets hope tomorrow then, I will let you know if I hear, good luck. Xx

I have interview for shropshire on friday as well.does anyone know what the 15 min multiple choice is about?

Lpool123 Wed 24-Apr-13 16:13:10

BradsV and bchickpea. I'm not sure what the multiple choice is I assume maths and English? Mine is at 1pm Friday anyone else's? X

MrsLWestie Wed 24-Apr-13 20:33:50

Just a thought BradsV and bchickpea - the multiple choice may be scenario based if time limited - a bit like the values based questionnaire I had to do although that wasn't timed.

Just completed my interview in North East Essex. Interview quite fair) role of HV, conflict resolution, safeguarding, my strengths, transferrable skills. Numeracy test which must have been ok as I managed it (lol) and a literacy test writing about how the HV can bring compassion into their role.

Won't hear for a week.

Phew it's over. Pretty intense.
