Student Nursing Times Editor (Mental Health) 2014/15
Anonymous | 1-Jul-2015 6:13 pm I'm curious to know this particular poster's view regarding progression being limited in nursing? I thought progression and opportunities were plentiful in nursing, unless I'm getting the two mixed up? I'm just curious to know. I am writing about finances for my next SNT editor blog to report on the ground level as to my personal finance experience in 3rd year.
Great piece Lucy that I wholeheartedly agreed with. Wanted to write about this but you got there first :)
Comment on: So, you’ve got the ‘Far Placement’
Thank you for this Danielle. I was wondering - did you have to pay additionally for the accommodation or was this provided for you? I personally would've loved the silence but then I'm quite happy living in solitude and I've done student living the first time round and wouldn't want it again. I'm guessing the internet would've been reasonable speed too to try contact people on social media for support (though face to face and phone is best) I know in our placements that accommodation would not be provided and we would have been expected to travel the mileage each way and pay for it, which with 13hr shifts, is pretty awful. I am quite jealous that you would have accommodation for a placement which is why I'm keen to find out if and how much you had to pay for this?
Congratulations Stevie-Jade! Have a congratulatory banner from me :) but seriously, it's comforting and reassuring to know that those anxieties are there even just prior to you qualifying and sure I'll experience the same when I get there. It'd be far worse if you felt too confident going in as as you can never know it all.
Comment on: ‘How can I make my mentor see past my mistake?’
1. As the others have said, discuss with your mentor your feelings.
2. May be writing a reflection on it and present it to him, asking what you need to do to restore his confidence.
3. If his attitude is still the same, bring in the link tutor/practice placement team.
4. Wondering what was meant by 'not fazed' by injections?
I'm a 2nd year who visits depot clinic every placement to keep my skills up to date but I know when I'm a clinic practicing or out on a ward, two nurses are required to draw up and wondering what your previous experience had been with giving depot injections? One or two people?
