Comment on: ‘I’m unhappy’
I have just finished my Mental-Health nursing degree, having been seconded (previously a band 6 non-professionally affiliated clinician for 8 years). I must say that I found some of my placements all but unbearable and that none of them were up to a standard that I would have expected. For what its worth I would suggest that you give some thought to the enormous variety of roles that a qualified nurse can fulfill. It is a varied profession and I would be surprised if there isn't something that you would find rewarding and satidfying. Equally, with two years of study behind you it would be a shame to waste the opportuniy to complete your degree......even if you never take a nursing role (some people never do). Try talking with your programme lead or personal and professional development tutor to work through your experience. Also, you would have nothing to lose by accessing student counselling. It would be a shame to abandon your studies now then regret it later. Best of luck to you.
