'I can’t afford to get to placement'

Comment

Girl! I was exactly in your position a few months ago. I'm only in my first year and I only knew about my placement the day before and was given a place last minute so I felt I couldn't complain. Had to pay £10 per day to get to my placement which consisted of mainly early shifts. They needed me to be there for 7, so I kept waking up 4am each morning. Took me more than 2 hours to get there. And it made me really ill because my body couldn't copewith it. I only told my lecturer I finished placement and asked if they could put me closer to where I live and they would sort it out. So just inform your lecturer or placement officer and they should help you. Unless you're not going to give your best to your patients if you're in so much stress and worried about your finances:)
