New Brutish Chat Forums

Due to the recent relaunch of Just for Nurses Brutish Nursing has once again become an independent website for student nurses.

As part of this process there will be a new fully functional Brutish Chat forum and secure registration process.

Existing registrations while still be valid so you will be able to log in with the passwords you used on the original Brutish Nursing website or those created through Just for Nurses.

The timetable for these changes is scheduled for the next three weeks

I'm looking forward to more lively discussions on the new Forum.

Hi Maureen

I don't understand what you mean by education route. You say that you are going to university soon in which case you seem to have the entry qualifications for a degree programme. Once you start, you will have to follow the education route that the university has approval for. Good luck with your studies.

books for students
Hi everyone,
Im newly qualified now - and about to begin my first nursing job - its scary, but exciting too.

Advice regarding books is to get them from your university library first to see if you like the way they read. The Marsden is good but i found 'Nursing Practice, Hospiatl and Home' easier to read/use.
As student nurses you can usually get BNF's for free from hospital pharmacies - if you're cheeky enough to just ask nicely. I did.

Good luck everyone xx

New graduates

I read a message by Jack89111 - Oz Ahoy! I'm a second year adult nursing student looking to move abroad to Oz, NZ or USA once I've qualified. How did you get your job in Oz so soon. I thought you had to have at least one years experience before you could apply with an agency? Are you able to point me in the right direction?
Any help would be great, thanks

Hi all I am trying at the moment to secure a health care assistant position at my nearest university hospital. Has anyone any interview tips, I'm a bit concerned as I have an old spinal injury (I fractured L4 & L5 when I was 19)and think that this may be held against me.

5,000 word citical care essay!!
Without knowing the guidelines, and which part or stage you are stuck on, it is impossible to help. Each uni has different programmes and therefore different assignments.

Hiya, for anyone who is interested and feeling the pull of the pursestrings, the site does discounts off nursing books for students, some are at 25% off - not a huge list but might be of interest (look in the summer sale section)!

My advice is to buy books that your module lecturers will recommend at the beginning of each module.

study of sterilization wraps
my name is Maciej and I'm working for a consulting company. We are currently conducting a study of sterilization wraps and I'm looking for contact with operating theater nurses in order to collect data on how those wraps should be like. The nurses willing to participate in the study are expected to fill an on-line questionnaire. They will be payed an incentive (or choose a charity to which the money should go to).
If you or your friend are an operating theatre nurse, please let me know it as soon as possible by sending an e-mail to
Thank you!

Starting uni
You could buy a nurses dictionary and the Student Nurse Handbook otherwise it is best to wait until you start and they give you book lists, then borrow rather than buy as many as you can.
