Well I would say wear a pair of plain black trousers and a smartish top. Neutral makeup and your hair again smart. Either tied back straight.
When you are talking at the interview make sure you give eye contact and that you listen to them when they are speaking. I know that may sound obvious but I know I find it so hard to concentrate in situations like that but if you look interested then you are half way there xxx
No advice to give, sorry. But I wish you lots of luck, I'll be applying to Uni in a years time and I'm already nervous of the interviews, I expect the ones who appear confident and voice their opinion are the ones who get noticed I suppose. Good luck
in the group discussion, try and contribute, but don't try and dominate - they'll like it if you look like a good listener. if you can get into a role of "chairing" the group then that will impress them. but don't worry too much about trying to impress, you just want to look interested in nursing, and show that you can listen to people.
Don't wear perfume. This is my top tip for anyone attending any important interview - even the nicest-smelling perfume may have unpleasant memories for the interviewer. Smell is a sense we rely on a lot, but subliminally, so you may say all the right things, but the interviewer might have been dumped by a girlfriend who smelt just like you so you won't get the place, even though they don't know why they don't like you.
I work in the NHS - not nursing, but the big thing seems to be social inclusion ie addressing health needs of people in deprived areas - smoking, alcohol dependence, mental ill-health etc, and how the environment you live in, and your access to affordable, decent housing, fresh food and leisure facilities etc can affect your wellbeing as much as anything. If that all makes sense?
Good luck with your interview
nikcola, as someone who's been on both sides of the interview experience I'd just reinforce everyone else here. Suit isn't nec (not for a degree interview), but keep it smart and 'classic'. Also firm (but not vicelike!) handshake and look at the interviewers.....If they ask a question you are not sure about don't bluff (unless you are an expert bluffer!) - ask them to repeat the question if necessary (gives you thinking time) and be honest. Try not to worry (easier said than done, I know...) Be yourself....and 'good luck'!
