Can you advise this student nurse?
“Help! I’ve suddenly realised that I’m due to go back to uni in a few weeks and the thought fills me with dread!
“I won’t say I’ve loved first year but I’ve worked hard and was determined to be a nurse. But after being at home and back with my real friends and my family I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth being away from home for another two years.
“I guess what I’m trying to find out is do other people feel this way? I know homesickness is normal but this is more than that, I really can’t face the thought of starting anther placement and being back outside my comfort zone.
“I don’t want to give up but I’d feel so relieved if I did. As hurtful as it would be, I half want someone to tell me that this means I’m not nurse-material and make it ok to drop out!”
