Positives: The practical side is my favourite. I’m able to put the things I have learnt during the semester into practice. Which helps in giving me an insight into what nursing actually is.

Negatives: The unnecessary units that I have to complete. The ones that have no influence on my chosen profession at all

My advice to future students is: It isn’t as easy as you think.
