We have all elected to undertake the course, and obviously want to do the best that we can, but I’m sure none of us want to sacrifice our social life in the process.
A student nurses’ social life is very different to that of other students. However, there are students who maintain a thriving social life even with the unique demands of a nursing course.
Are you one of them? Thinking about my own tutor group, there are students who go to the gym three times a week and others who are active members in sports clubs.
Despite my best efforts, I have seen my attendance in activities and clubs I used to care so much about dwindling over the past two years. I clearly haven’t got the study/social balance worked out yet.
