Hello, I got A and B in gcse and I got C in my alevels I have started adult nursing but I really want to do medicine but my anxiety is really holding me back with exam performance. What routes are open for me.
You’re joining a great profession (I’m not just saying that because I’m a nurse!)
You’ll find that as you progress through your nursing degree you’ll be given more responsibility from your mentors. I found that timemanagement was more and more important because you have to juggle assignments, exams and clinical placements.
Here’s my top 3 pieces of advice for nursing students going into 2nd/3rd year:
If you can keep on top of assignmnets, sign-offs etc
as well as maintaining a good rapport with your mentor and personal tutor you’ll do well.
aving a good group of friends to rely on when you’re stressing is also a must, remember no-one is an island.
What’s nice is that you’ll rotate through different departments and you’ll learn alot about specific specialties. This will help you decide what you enjoy and ultimately could help you decide which job to apply for on graduation.
Ultimately enjoy your time at uni because it’s a life-changing experience.
