Who Completes A Pre-Nursing Placement With Us?

Our Pre-Nursing Placements are designed for any student applying or reapplying to gain a place on a nursing course. Students are typically aged 16-19 years old and are wanting to pursue a career as a nurse or specialty training nurse. Post-graduates and elective students are also welcome to apply.

Learn From Current Medical Students & Doctors

Our UK Doctors and Medical Students design the curriculum for the mock interviews and clinical skills sessions. There is no other organisation that provides this level of mentorship and training from qualified NHS Doctors or Medical Students. We always have at least one UK Medical Student on each project as a minimum. Where possible our UK Doctors also join our projects but this is subject to their schedule and availability.

Your Work Experience

Students complete 25 hours work experience per week. Students shadow a local nurse or doctor, who will explain cases and procedures. Groups of students don't exceed five as we want this to be a personal experience with plenty of time for you to discuss cases with the mentors. All our mentors are experienced teachers and speak English. The range of departments vary depending on which location you select, here are a few typical departments you can experience. 

  • General Surgery
  • Paediatrics
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • Oncology
  • Intensive Care Units
  • Radiology
  • Dermatology 
  • Nephrology
  • Orthopaedics 
  • Pathology
  • Tropical Diseases/Medicine
  • Ophthalmology
  • Casualty
  • Gastroenterology
  • Respiratory Medicine
  • Anaesthesiology 

Interview Workshops & Clinical Skills

We run at least 2 mock interview workshops each week that are designed to simulate certain aspects of medical school interviews. Each session is concluded with some general feedback and then more detailed individual feedback. Here are our typical interview workshops:

  • Multiple Mini Interviews 
  • Panel interviews 
  • Group ethical debates
  • Individual 1-on-1 interview technique sessions

Throughout the week we run mini clinical training sessions that are designed to help students understand some basic anatomical functions. These are fun and interactive ways to learn some of the basics of medicine. Here are some of the different examinations we teach:

  • The body's pulses
  • Cardiovascular examination
  • Respiratory examination
  • Abdominal examination
  • Neurological examination
