Our course has had unprecedented success and has helped thousands of applicants achieve their dream of being accepted into their chosen nursing degree course.

The course follows a blended learning approach. This means that you will benefit from extensive tutoring during the classroom course and you will be able to continue practising your skills on our online e-learning platform following the course and during the weeks before the official test.



What to Expect?

Our mature student nursing assessment preparation course has helped thousands of candidates achieve success and secure their nursing/midwifery degree course. The 1-day courses take place in top class hotel conference centres to ensure your comfort. During the preparation course all aspects of The Assessment Test for mature nursing / midwifery applicants are fully analysed, discussed and solutions are fully explained by tutors with the highest relevant qualifications in psychometric testing. Our tutors always create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere during the course to ensure that there is a positive learning experience and environment. We find that this encourages questioning from students and as a result allows for a clear understanding of the material for the whole class.

Numerous handouts will be distributed during the course covering all sections and practice material will also be given out for you to try out at home after the course. The course is also a great opportunity to meet other applicants. You will find that they are just as anxious as you are about the exam and it really helps to know that you are not alone. In a group setting like this your confidence can really soar.

Limited Places: These courses are extremely popular every year. They have limited spaces and operate on a first come first served basis. Early bookings are advised to avoid disappointment.

The PAS & Career Services: Career Services is a privately run education company. We have no affiliation to the Public Appointments Service (PAS). It is the PAS who run The Assessment Test on behalf of An Bord Altranais. We base our preparation courses on the types of tests that have appeared in previous years and have had great success with this method. Our courses aim to give candidates the very best tuition with the information that is available at the time of the preparation course but obviously we  can take no responsibility for any future changes that the PAS make to the exam.

Tuition guarantee: In the unlikely event of the PAS making any changes to the exam after your attendance at the course, we will provide new study material to you when the test familiarisation booklet is released. This ensures that you can book the course safe in the knowledge that you are giving yourself the best opportunity to prepare for the exam. No other course provider offers this service!

Online Access: Courses are campaign/exam year specific therefore access to online resources will only be available for the duration of the campaign/ exam year associated with the course.
