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. I've just found this thread. I found out on Monday that I have an interview with the LD next Wednesday for the student health visitor course. I'm so so so nervous as I don't feel prepared and I want this so much. Has anyone had their interview yet? How did it go? any tips or recommendations of things to look at. I've read the suggested reading on the LD website like the Marmot Review and the Frank Field paper and the HCP and the HV implementation plan. Anything else. Aaaaaarggghh!!! I hate interviews.

Hey everyone. I've been short listed for interview in Northampton and have to write a literacy and numeracy test. Anyone else interviewed in Northampton so I know what to expect and prepare. The invitation says interview but on the programme it has this lit/num assessment and a communication group activity. Will I have to attend again for interview seperately. Any info for Northampton will be appreciated. Thank you all. Been reading some posts on here and it's been helpful.
