I decided to pursue a career in Nursing after having my children, which was my only real experience of care, and chose to specialise in Mental Health. Stirling was the best choice for me as it has both the city and country feel, the surroundings are second to none!
The lecturers are fantastic, each with their own nursing background, they are knowledgeable, approachable, helpful and caring.
Since becoming a student nurse, I have made lots of new friends and have had the opportunity to get involved in student life in other ways such as being a class representative. I like the way the course is split into chunks of theory and clinical practice – it can be challenging and hard work but is extremely fulfilling. I can’t believe I’m in Year 2 already! To become a Mental Health Nurse is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
