    Hi Magichands
    Thanks for the reply. I too am a mature student (very mature ). So far it's been a pretty interesting road for me, I quit my job and now work part time. I am going to college and am doing an Access course because it's been
    +- 22 years since I last studied. My determination to reach my goals are very high because I want it so bad. I am really trying my best but do get stuck hear and there, I will however ask my teachers for better understanding I'm sure they will be willing to help me. The college I attend is very helpful, and I have a great tutor. Thanks for the encoragment I feel a lot better about it already
    Cheers and best of luck to you.

    hi, i was never allowed to do venapuncture as a student nurse and i had to take it upon myself to do the course after qualifying, same goes for male catherterisation, i trained at sheffield uni, and have been qualified 4 years, i also did the diploma, and it never stopped me from progressing in my work place.

    Hi springbokssa,

    springbokssa,

    So are you doing social sciences? this was what was offered at the college I used for the 2 year and the one year was life sciences, lots of chem etc!

    I am currently in New Jersey, came here in Oct last year for husbands job but we hate it so am going back in 7 weeks, got to finish my application today for nursing.

    I should be lucky as the uni I will use offer shorted couses for people with an NVQ level 3 in care which I also have so my training should be 2 years as I get to skip year 1. Also I have been working prior to moving here as an HCA in my local hospital on the bank, my contract is still open so I return to that.

    Best of luck,
    Lorna x

    Hi loopulorns
    I'm doing the health and physiology, psychology and sociology plus another 2 subjects. You are lucky to get a shortend course I've got the long road as I don't have any NVQ'S. Best of luck to you at least you have a job waiting which always helps
    Cheers

    Hello

    One thing i find usefull with patients with dementia is to talk to them,chat along the same lines they are .Do not say they are silly and they will be fin .A feature of dementia is that they can talk at long length about the past . they appear to remember this even if they do not remember what they did or said five minutes ago.

    Good luck

    Hi
    I'm a second year student at a uni in the midalnds. I'm one of those smarties talked about who've opted to do the degree, although now I'm worried because we don't get a bursary next year and don't know if can afford it, plus theres just so much work to! Everyone in the world seems to think I should do it if I can. Anyone got a gleam of light for me? :studyowl:

    Hi
    I would just like to find out if any of you have ever doubted your ability to become a nurse? I am applying to Manchester Uni next year, but am a bit worried as I am not doing to well in my anatomy and phisiology at the moment, but I do know this is the career I would love to do.
    Any thoughts would be most appreciated
    Thanks
    Hi, I found the A+P really hard, its really stressful learning it all for the big exam but I really wouldn't worry. I learnt the basics, guessed most of the questions and just reread stuff depending on where your placements send eg urology. May not feel it but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
