Can you advise this student nurse?
“Usually, I am generally healthy and only get a cold maybe once every other year. But since starting at my placement, I have been getting sick much more often.
“I understand that I am around viruses more and am more tired and stressed than before, but I still don’t think that I should be catching this many bugs. I often feel like I have a fever or a sore throat. I don’t want to take time off, but I also don’t want to endanger any patients or fellow student nurses.
“Does anyone have any health secrets that helped them survive the first-year fevers? How much time is too much time to miss?”
