Product description

Nursing is the one of the most popular degrees in the UK, with nearly 200,000 applicants every year. Competition for places is tough, and it is essential to stand out from the crowd in order to get a place. This book helps potential nursing students succeed in getting into nursing. It gives practical help on the application process: filling out application forms, passing numeracy and literacy tests and succeeding at interviews. It also explains what nurses do, what personal qualities are needed and what is involved in nursing training, so applicants can decide whether nursing is really for them.
