Before and after your clinical rotation, you will meet with your clinical instructor. There are usually about 8-12 other nursing students in a clinical group at one time. Which is another reason why there is a nursing shortage. There are not enough instructors to take more students, but that’s another story.

There are no official government lists of universities in terms of quality in the UK. Why? Well, mainly because different universities specialise in different subjects. So, if you look at the league tables for different subjects you will find the list of universities in a different order. For example;
Business and management studies
Notice here that Cambridge, one of the UK’s top universities, is not in the top 5 for business.
