Second year, mental health nursing, University of Wolverhampton
Hello student nurses, my name is Parveen I am a second year student at the University of Wolverhampton.
I am completely new to blogging, hence, it is an exciting opportunity for me to share my journey with all the student nurses.
I previously worked with people with learning disabilities, which I found very rewarding.
However, my best friend who unfortunately suffered from postnatal depression, and this led me in wanting to learn more about mental health in order to support her fully in her recovery.
Thus, I started as a healthcare worker in a mental health setting which I find to be very interesting and challenging at times. In addition to that, it gave me some experience and an interest of furthering my career in the mental health field.
What appealed to me was the therapeutic relationship between a patient and a nurse relationship, and the care and compassion that build the relationship in a more trusting way.
My journey started as a student on a part time LEAP course from the University of Wolverhampton which gave me the 60 credits that I required prior to my nursing degree.
After, I finished my LEAP in January, I started my nursing degree in September, which was exciting and worrying at the same time. However, I feel that I have made the right decision and followed the right path and soon to be a future mental health nurse.
Finally, I hope this help some of you out there and please follow my blog as I have so many things to share with you all.
