Can you advise this student nurse?
“A couple weeks ago, I finished my first term at uni for Christmas. For those last few weeks before end of term, all I could think about was coming home and spending time with family and old friends. But, now that the dust has cleared, I can’t help but realise I how much happier I am now that I’m not at uni.
“Plus, whenever I think about going back to lectures or starting a new placement in January I feel a sense of dread.
“I’ve always known that training to be a nurse is challenging, but I’m starting to think that all the stress it causes is having too much of a negative impact my quality of life.
“What should I do if I feel like never going back to uni to finish my training? Should I stick it out or should I think about other options that might make this feeling go away? Does this show I’m not cut out for nursing?”
