Can you advise this student nurse?
“I was actually going to wait another year before starting my training as I have small children and wanted to wait until they are all in school, but a friend advised me to start this year so I can still get the bursary.
“It’s been a hectic couple of months with applying, going to interviews, sorting out funding and childcare but I am thrilled to say I will be starting my course this September!
“Now the reality has hit, I suddenly feel incredibly unprepared!
“Does anyone have anything they wish they’d done to prepare? Or anything they’re glad they did?
“I’d particularly love to hear from any parents. I’m lucky to have a supportive partner but he’s at work too and childcare is my main concern. But I’m not the first parent to study nursing, does anyone have any tips on juggling my role as a Mum and as a student nurse?”
