Can you advise this new student nurse?
”I was due to start university in September, but became pregnant unexpectedly so I’ve deferred until March 2017. My baby will be three months old when I start and I don’t know if I will be able to do adult nurse training with a three month old. I know other students have children whilst at university and have managed, but a three month old baby?
”I have worked so hard to get my place in university and been at college for two years so I really don’t want to give up now.
”But with the bursaries stopping after March I don’t really have a choice.
”In college we did have people from the university come and explain about childcare and what’s available but I didn’t pay any attention as I didn’t think I would have any children when starting university. So my knowledge of the support and financial help you receive in university when having children is really poor.
”I would really appreciate any parents who have young children to give me a bit of advice please? How do you afford going to university and having a young baby and the childcare? Is it possible?
“Thank you all”
