Can you advise this student nurse?
”I came to my current university because it is one of the best for studying nursing. However, I’m finding that it is really academic and despite working really hard, I don’t do that well on the assignments. The lecturers are really picky markers and expect an awful lot.
”I certainly don’t see myself getting any A grades. I think I underestimated how difficult this degree would be and thought I would sail through. The other students are really competitive and do better than me from what I can gather.
“For the first time in years I feel insecure about my academic ability. Would I be better going to another university where there is more of a mix of backgrounds and ability, or are nursing courses extremely ‘full-on’ everywhere?”
