Can you advise this student nurse?
“Since starting my course in September I’ve started to realise that there is a LOT of academic work that goes into becoming a nurse.
“I have friends who do extra reading every night and spend literally hours in the library researching essays.
“I just want to enjoy being at uni so to be honest I’ve not been putting my all into it and I’ve been getting ok grades, but not great.
“But I just have this niggling feeling in the back of my mind that passing probably isn’t enough and actually if I feel this way then maybe I should put my nursing aspirations on ice.
“I know I can scrape through the course doing as little as possible but, then again, will that make me a good enough nurse?”
“What does everyone think – does a ‘pass’ make you good enough to nurse?”
