Can you advise this student nurse?
“When I first applied to study nursing I naively thought it was going to be quite easy. I knew there was a lot to learn but I thought there was plenty of time to do so, and plenty of time for me to bring up my family at the same time.
“Then, a month before I actually start, I began reading blogs written by student nurses and am shocked by stories of 13-hour days and 50+ hour weeks.
“Is this the reality? How do other parents cope?”
