Can you advise this student nurse?
“Hello! New student nurse here (starting this September)!
“My next door neighbour finished her course two years ago and has been so helpful with telling me what to expect but one thing she said really scared me. She says that student nurses have to do more than 40 hours of work a week and you have to do extra reading every night just to pass.
“Is that true? I’m not stupid but I’m not really academic so am feeling a bit sick at the thought of how I’m going to keep up!
“Can I do a quick poll and ask people how many hours of work they think they end up doing on an average week?”
