Can you advise this student nurse?
“I really enjoyed my first term of nursing but I’ve just come back after Christmas and just feel like I don’t want to be here.
“I’m 18 and this is the first time I’ve lived away from home. I was absolutely fine in September when I first got here but I think maybe that was the excitement. It’s so much worse leaving home now after two weeks back with my family.
“If it gets worse I think I’m going to have drop out, which I really don’t want to do.
“Everyone else just seems happy to be back, like it’s completely normal to be away from home, so I don’t feel like I can tell anyone how much I don’t want to be here - it sounds so pathetic!
“So really I’m just looking for advice on how to cope with feeling like this. I can’t carry on with my training if I move back home because it’s too far and I know I’d regret it if I left.”
