Do you have any advice for this student nurse?
“I’m worried about a fellow student nurse. We both started nursing in September last year and from the start she was a bit wild and sometimes took pills on nights out.
“Over the last couple of months she’s been completely out of control. She’s been staying out clubbing til 3 or 4 in the morning when she has placement the next day and she smokes cannabis from the second she wakes up in the morning. It feels like she’s always stoned.
“Obviously, telling university isn’t an option because I don’t want her to get kicked off the course. She doesn’t think there’s a problem so I feel like I have to do something to make her realise the effect this could be having on her patients.”
“What should I do?!”
