Can I ask mamicar- have you applied for nursing and midwifery courses at the same time?

mamicar Fri 29-Nov-13 13:45:51

Nooo Gin! Just Child Nursing smile

I've applied for the three south wales uni's. I am on Access course at the mo and the midwife to be students have all heard back already since sending there apps two weeks ago... Adult nurses havent heard anything. I am the only Child Nurse on the course.

Hi, I have applied for adult nursing post graduate, got a rejection from one uni and have been asked to complete some apel forms for another (better) university which I am currently working on, only got 2 weeks and they need to be perfect. I also have to get a reference from work tyo prove that I actually work in health care. Am struggling, I know what I should be saying but what is coming out is bluergh.

mamicar Tue 03-Dec-13 17:16:17

what is apel forms? Never heard of them x

I'm about to apply for adult nursing at The UEA. I'm currently doing an access to science and nursing course and really enjoying it, could really only apply to one university at the moment due to the family but have a fall back plan in place I get refused.

I've had my first wobble in college this week SO many assignments all due within days of each other. Sociology one I am really struggling with though.

ditavonteesed Tue 03-Dec-13 17:33:01

apel is accreditation of prior (certified/experential) learning. it is basically a reflective piece on each of my work places (there are only 2 thank god) to prove that I have done enough to do nursing in 2 years. They ahve to send it to the NMC for approval before they can interview you for the course.

mamicar Tue 03-Dec-13 17:44:34

ahh so won't come up for me then? phew!

Good luck!

ditavonteesed Tue 03-Dec-13 17:48:31

you will get the assisgnments done, and think of the relief afterwards smile

mamicar Tue 03-Dec-13 17:55:53

Thanks smile I think I put too much pressure on myself. Ive handed in 5 so far and had all distinctions so need to have more faith in myself!! Just really struggling with sociology, the other subjects I am okay with.

mamicar Thu 05-Dec-13 11:21:44

I managed to finish my sociology smile handed it in via email as youngest boy is quite poorly and I had a lovely email back saying well done for doing it and she is very proud of me smile. how lovely

ditavonteesed Thu 05-Dec-13 21:11:22

thats lovely and a relief I bet to get it in, hope little one is better. I ot an interview for undergraduate nursi as well as the portfolio to put together for post graduate. I just turned my computer o tonight and there it was. grin

mamicar Thu 05-Dec-13 21:15:13

yay well done grin

ThePortlyPinUp Sat 07-Dec-13 18:34:44

I've just sent my ucas off for my reference to be added, phew glad that it's gone. Got a study skills assignment to write tomorrow, it's not got to be for over a week but I want to get it done and dusted early so I can concentrate on the next wave of assignments.

mamicar Sat 07-Dec-13 21:32:50

I'm working on evaluating the four psychology perspectives. kind of. I've wrote intro anyway then downed tools to eat chocolate grin
