Experience of interacting with members of the public from a range of backgrounds in different settings is essential when applying to a health or social care course. It is important to be able to understand and explain how your experiences relate to the activities and qualities which are required of nurses caring for children. The NHS values are key to all our health courses. There are many ways you can gain experience - this might be as part of a programme of study or in a paid or voluntary capacity, and doesn't always need to be within a care setting. Interacting with people with different life experiences will help you develop a deeper level of understanding of the diversity of the population who access health and social care. In your personal statement please reflect upon your learning from any of these experiences demonstrating an understanding of the profession and a genuine, reasoned commitment to studying a child nursing course. You will be invited to attend an interview if these key elements are included in your personal statement.
