Can you advise this student nurse?
”I have just finished my first year in adult nursing and am so excited to qualify despite how daunting it can be at times.
“I respect honesty and really value other opinions, but on my last placement there were a few nurses who complained so much about their job – even in front of patients – and didn’t seem worried that the students were listening.
”One nurse in particular sat down with us one shift and said if she had her time again she would absolutely not become a nurse and that we had no idea what we were getting into.
“I understand she is fed up, but we were all so eager and passionate, so is it fair to dampen our dreams so early on? I feel like I am getting told not to become a nurse from every angle. Has anyone else had this problem?”
