Need advice - February 4th 2009, 07:03 AM

Ok, so I want to do childrens nursing at university, I want it so badly, I want to either do cancer care or work with children in the A&E. Trouble is it is SO competitive, I mean some universities have 20 applicants per place. I am doing sociology, psychology, law and world development As. As for volunteering I help out at a toddlers club, baby sit, and I have a interview to help out at a play scheme. I can't imagine myself doing anything else. I want to have a gap year (full time volunteering and a course on abuse and trauma) and I have looked into volunteering at a hospital when I turn 17. What if its not enough? Help?

If you don't believe you can get it then chances are you won't get it.
From what you've posted it looks like you're doing a good job especially since you're going to put your gap year to relevant use. I'm sure you'll be ok

Do all that you can do and hope for the best. You have to believe in yourself. Apply to more than one place and hope that you get into one. Good luck. :]
