I have officially registered onto my final year of nursing, this means I’m a soon to qualify nurse! I can now start applying for roles.
Some people may say it’s too early to be doing this but I know of people who have received job offers in October with a start date of the following September. I see it as more opportunities to land that role, especially if you want to work in a certain area.
I’ve applied to 3 or 4 in Worthing/Chichester, 1 in Brighton, and even one in Portsmouth. I’m just hoping that a job I want comes up, I really don’t see myself in elderly care.
I can’t be that picky though and I will accept pretty much any job. It’s best to have multiple offers rather than none at all.
Not sure if anyone in my cohort has started applying yet. I know some won’t for a while. To think that by March I could have my first role as a NQN!
So we have had our timetable published for a few weeks now and I forgot to blog about it.
There was no announcement about it, I just happen to continuously check on all things uni (placement post coming soon) and I think I stumbled onto it at the same time as the uni for publishing/working on it. At first, I saw weeks of 4 or 5 days in uni, not something I’d like, what with needing to also work. Thankfully, it turns out there is 1 wk of 5 days & even then I don’t have to go to 2 of them. In total, I have only 9 weeks at uni from Feb to July and then that’s me finished for university for good. I do have 18 weeks of placement after that though.
Strangely, no-one has mentioned anything about the timetable in the main group chat. I have now stopped notifications but no-one has posted since 3rd or 5th December. Usually, as soon as something pops up from uni, someone is asking about it. In my little group chat, no one has mentioned it there either, but they have been talking about an email we got about placements that didn’t make sense.
No-one appears to have noticed that placements have already been allocated either. I’ve mentioned it to one person but they haven’t gotten back to me yet. I think they are on holiday til uni starts.
