What advice would you give to future students?
Make time for self-care – this is so important
Aside from dedicated study time, make time to see your friends and family and also for hobbies or activities that you love and bring you joy. Even if its walking your dog, spending ‘protected’ time with your children, having a bath or getting up for a run at 6am.
Aspire to become more organised
Organisational skills and effective time management skills have been a blessing and have really helped me to succeed!
Hang in there! It’s not a walk in the park
Choosing to study mental health nursing is easily the hardest but equally the best thing I have ever done and I would gladly do it all over again in a heartbeat!
