Does this sound bad for MH nursing interview?

I think I did really well with most of the questions and definitely came over enthusiastic and genuinely would love to be a mental health nurse . There's just two things I didn't think to mention and I'm really annoyed with myself .

Question about personal care : I talked about how I would approach it and about consent and what I would do if I failed to get consent - but didn't mention the words respect or dignity .

Question about the role of a student mental health nurse : I spoke about confidentiality and that primarily you are there to learn - but I didn't mention that as a student you must go through your mentor with everything and that you must inform patients that you are a student and respect their right to be treated by a registered professional .

I studied all this stuff and I'm so annoyed with myself !! If the rest of my answers were solid think I've not blown it ? There are 250 applicants and only 30 placesconfused

They will expect you to be nervous, and not remember to say everything. What you said sounds great to me, RGN. Try not to worry about it. When will you find out? And do you have any other interviews lined up?

Thanks just feeling I need reassurance u feel like they were quite big things to leave out but if I had mentioned then I would have given the perfect interview !!

I've not heard anything from my second choice uni for mental health , but I did get an unconditional from that uni for learning disability nursing (no interview though)

Didn't get in to my second choice didn't even get invited for an interview . Apparently my personal statement didn't demonstrate my knowledge of mental health nursing sad
