What’s your advice for dealing with stress?
Being a student nurse isn’t easy. Not only do you have the worry of getting your essays in on time and passing your exams, you’re also in the unique position of having to change jobs every few months (at most!). This means adapting to a whole new team, new ways of working and avoiding getting caught up with ward politics, all while dealing with new and potentially distressing situations. And to top it all off you have a set of learning objectives you have to achieve in a limited time, making your initiative one of your most valuable tools.
It’s worth it to do a job you love but just thinking about all that makes us want to have a cup of tea and a sit down!
So we want to know how you cope with things when they get too much.
