Worried about your first placement!? Worried about your Assessment of practice!? In my new vlog I’ll give you some tips and advice on how to get ready for your 1st placement as a student nurse. If you have any questions just leave me a comment below the video or on this blog and I will get back to you ASAP. 🙂 Good luck on your first placement and remember….you can do it!!
Hi there! Have you applied for a nursing degree? Have you been invited for an interview? My interview day at UEA was fantastic. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. If you’re wondering what my interview day looked like then have a look at my vlog below:
My tips are:
Dress smart, but comfortable.
Prepare yourself for the interview by reading The NMC Code 2015, The Nursing Times, Nursing job descriptions, The Independent Nurse, empowerment theory, therapeutic relationships etc.
Be confident and be yourself.
Think well before you answer.
Shadow a nurse for a day or work as a carer if you can just to get a taste of nursing care and include your experience in your personal statement. Plus, mention it in the interview if you can.
So I have just uploaded my very first vlog of the year! I talk about my placement in the community and what it is like to work with district nurses. I must point out that I truly enjoy my placement so far and have learned a lot more than I had expected.
Hopefully, I keep it up and upload more videos in the future! Do you have any ideas what videos to make and what topics to cover!? Your help is more than welcome!! 🙂
Are you a student? Or do you still keep the memories of your student days alive? Well, this post is going to be a little bit different than my usual posts, so I hope you get an idea of the other side of student life.
