So this post is all about me…I don’t know where to start, you can tell from the domain nursing is going to be mentioned. My hopes for this platform is to let it all out, my hopes, dreams, aspirations, fears, worries and struggles.
I start my nursing journey in September 2017, and honestly I am scared. Nurses get a lot of shit, literally and figuratively. The NHS (National Health Service) has a shortage of nurses, my fear is I will not be able to survive in a hospital that is understaffed, that is if I survive university. I am scared of messing up, of not being good enough, of letting my mum down (that fear is irrational, if you knew my mum). Fear is a funny thing, it can creep up and just remains for me. I have this image of fear just circling all around me, never leaving. I think it remains as I pretend to be fine, that I am not scared, but overall I am. Only time will tell.
Facts about me
- I am ginger
- I will be classed as a mature student in university (I am 22 for crying out loud!)
- I am 3 Siblings (All younger)
- I am English but living in Scotland.
- I live alone (Adulting is hard, suppose that’s why i make use of mum’s couch)
- I sat for 15 minutes trying to think of more facts, I’ll get back to you.
You might be wondering what this blog will be about, It could just end up just being one of millions of blogs on the internet, well I suppose it all ready is. This blog will be my creative outlet, a way of putting it out there. Over the next four years it will feature my nursing journey and my life as I grow some more, there is always room for improvement!!
