Do you have any advice for this student nurse?
“I’m in second year and on my first theatre placement. It’s not an area that I want to work in but I really am trying my hardest. I’m just never good enough for my mentor.
“I struggle to be assertive to people way above me and she expects me to remember the order of 100 or so instruments, she always picks up on anything I do wrong and it’s massively knocking my confidence.
“What can I do? Or do I have to just grin and bear it?”
- Hilary, Oxford
