Can you advise this student nurse?
“Like most people, I came into nursing to help people and I truly believe that every shift I make something better, even if it’s just something tiny.
“But when I hear about the awful things that are happening in the world, in particular the terrible things that refugees are going through, I just feel so helpless.
“I want to be able to do more and help people on a wider scale but as a student nurse I don’t know where to start. I know that if I reach the level of being a Director of Nursing I can make organisational changes that will benefit patients but I’m a second year student nurse – that’s a long way off!
“I know it sounds cheesy, but what can I do to make the world a better place? Does anyone know of any volunteering or anything I could do as a student nurse?”
