Kismet9 Hi South Wales (unsure about England) 6 weeks in uni and 6 weeks on placement. Shifts range from early 6.40 - 2.30 and late 1.40 - 9.30 long day 7 - 7.30 then nights 9.10 - 7 but some wards 7 - 7.30. If you have supportive husband (emotionally) good chidminder then Im sure you will be fine. Placements are understanding of childcare issues. You are not counted in the numbers so as long as you get those hours done. Any issues your uni will support you. They want you to succeed. Good luck!
