    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!

    Hello
    I was given to understand that you apply for
    the diploma and if you pass all exams you can apply for the degree not sure if this is right,

    My understanding is that with deploma you get the bursary, and with degree its means tested.

    Hi Sandie,

    Ok spoke with NHS direct about diploma/degree thing.

    There is no difference in the end qualification between the 2 but if you want to go on to do things like train nurses etc then the degree is preferable.

    I was told that if you just want to work as nurse then diploma is fine.

    Also entry requirements for degree may be higher depending on uni you go to.

    or like many a nurse train get your diploma and pin and upgrade to adegree in the area you wish to specialize in.

    might even get work to pay for the modules
