Hi I have a few uni interviews coming up for admission into Child Nursing. Does anyone have any tips for the interview stage?

Hi, there! I assume you are not in the US since you are referring to university as 'uni.' I wrote a list of common nursing school interview questions and answers, although it is more geared toward students who hope to attend school in the US. The link to the questions is below. Good luck to you!

No I am in the UK although I do hope to one day be living in the US. Can you tell me if the qualifications are similar? Would I be expected to retrain if accepted to live and work in the US?

I am not that well-versed in immigration issues, but you would need to earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing if you wanted to ever work in the US. The bachelor of science degree in nursing is the minimum level of education that would render you qualified for a work visa.

Have just read your link you put on your first reply, it was very useful thank you. Our current tutors have warned us about some of the questions that may be asked and some were on your list so its definitely applicable to UK students too. I have heard that the US is very hard to get into now but for me its still worth a try after education and some years experience. I love the USA hopefully they will let me in one day :)

US nurses are generalist trained so you must show that your education included theory and clinical in adult med/surg, pediatrics, obstetrics/maternity, geriatrics and psych/mental health to be eligible for licensing in the US and take the NCLEX. It's similar to Canada. In the UK nurses are specialist trained in adult, child, ID, psych, or midwifery.
