'How do I deal with the pressure?'

  • Comment

Can you advise this student nurse?

“The pressure at uni is ramping up now that so many of my classmates have dropped out. Some of my classmates have left their nursing degree because it was too difficult or too expensive. Now I feel like there is a spotlight on those of us left because we have made it to second year.

“The attention and more one-on-one relationship with mentors is nice sometimes, but I also feel a lot of pressure to be perfect.

“I don’t want to let them or my placement down, but I also don’t think I can maintain trying to constantly be perfect when I am definitely not.

“Any advice on how to stay true to my abilities even when under constant scrutiny?”
