Deferring a year

My daughter wants to defer doing Adult Nursing for a year and she has three conditional places. This is to get work experience and for financial reasons. Will she have to write another personal statement and attend interviews and do tests again?

No. She should contact the universities by phone/email and ask if they will consider deferring her application and conditional offers to 2018 entry.
This can be sorted out through UCAS if she gains their agreement.

Best of luck to your daughter,
