Hi everyone, just found this site. I am a student nurse from Northern Ireland, I am in my second year at university and just entered my branch program of Mental Health in September. Looking forward to chatting with you all.

I'm new to the forum, but not new to nursing. If I can be of any help, don't hesitate to ask.

Yeah, everybody loves the accent lol. (I'm from NI too)
What uni are you at? What's life as a student nurse like? I've applied for September so I'm eager to hear about your experiences so far!

Thanks for the encouragement, I have heard good things about studying nursing here. I applied to QUB and heard back last week- my interview is at the start of next month. I'm excited, but also quite nervous about it, do you have any advice? What kinds of questions did you get asked in your interview? Where did you apply?

I hope your interview has gone well, if you have not had it yet good luck. my main advice would be just to be natural, the interviewers want to see that you firstly can be a warm, interested person with good listening skills, just be enthusiastic about becoming a nurse and emphasise how keen you are to learn and of course that patient care is number one! i'm sure you will do well! let me know how it goes.
