5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally useful and well-researched 16 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book that covers quite a complex topic in a thorough but concise way. I read it from cover to cover on a two-hour train trip and by the end of it I felt I had a very clear, detailed and realistic understanding of all the issues that need to be considered when choosing and applying to study nursing or midwifery.

I like the way the book goes directly to the point right from page one by establishing the high demand for places on nursing and midwifery degree courses and how focused your personal statement needs to be. I also especially like the way it then goes into depth on the topic of work experience and the insight it provides into the different kinds of experiences that are relevant.

The chapters dealing with the generic skills and qualities needed for both midwifery and each branch of nursing are excellent, as is the personal statement chapter which does a great job in explaining the essential importance of writing reflectively about your experiences and insights. The chapter on selection days includes good examples illustrating some of the wider ethical and professional issues around health and care that you need to be aware of and there is good information for mature applicants and good chapters on funding and subsequent career routes.

Three very minor criticisms are the lack of a male role model amongst the case studies, no mention of university comparison sites and also the application timescales, which suggested you need to attend uni open days in the spring of your application year - in my own view, June, July and even September/October would not be too late for students who are trying to balance their career and uni research with their academic studies. But given the very tight deadlines and space constraints authors have to work to, these are minor sticking points in what is an exceptionally useful and well-researched book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for students, parents and advisers 16 Jun 2013
By M Evans
Format:Paperback
With nursing and midwifery getting harder to get into, this book has been published at just the right time. It is clear, easy to read and well laid-out. It is useful to dip into for reference or to read from cover to cover. I particularly like all the quotes from students and university staff.

I work with adults or young people who are applying for nursing and midwifery courses at university and there is plenty of information to help me. The chapter on selection days will help my students to be well-prepared and to give their best at interview. The chapter on non-standard applications covers some of the more complex and unusual queries that I might face.

I would highly recommend this book for a careers or higher education adviser, for inclusion in a careers library or for any individual who wants to know more and enhance their chances of getting into nursing and miwifery.
