'How will I cope with long hours?'

  • Comment

Can you advise this student nurse?

“Recently, I have been talking to the nurses at my placement about their hours. They all work long hours, especially around the holidays. After I finish studying and find a job, I am worried about all the long hours I will have to work.

“I know that nursing is what I am passionate about and that helping people will make the long hours worth it, but how do you make the holidays special with so little time?

”I am missing out on so many big moments in my family and friends’ lives. Any recommendations for making the holidays special when you work long or strange hours?”
