Comment on: Meet your new Student Nursing Times editors
Welcome to the gang, seams like only yesterday I was doing it. I will say Hi in person via Twitter.
such a powerful article and your anecdote at the end is so depressing.
We often reminded that we should not conduct personal conversations around patients regardless of what state they appear to be in. We're also told that you're hearing is often one last senses to go so, as you said, one patient may appear unable to comprehend what's going on the very opposite may be true.
I hope this article helps other students improve their practice.
Really good article. I tried to keep a reflective diary form my time in practice but it's really hard to get out of the habit of just being descriptive. Hopefully I am getting there.
Looking forward to your next one.

When I first asked Nursing Times about writing a few articles I had no idea that I was lucky enough to approach them just as they were creating Student Nursing Times.
When I was asked to write a weekly article this time last year I had some preconceptions about the audience I was talking to.
I want to talk about the often unseen support that helps students get through their three years of training. Support that is beyond colleagues and services at your university.
In my experience, the most flamboyant and interesting have been the consultants.
I used to think that student nurses were fragile and needed to be nurtured to develop into confident and competent nurses of the future.
