Everything I look forward to learning as a Student Mental Health Nurse

I have just over a month to go until I start my degree in Mental Health Nursing and I am feeling all of the emotions. Part of me is looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life and I can't wait to start my career but the other part of me is nervous and I can't help but question if I am making the right choice, if this is definitely what I want to do and if I will even be able to do it. Having said that, there is so much that I can't wait to start learning about and I feel that after many years within mental health services, I may have a slight head start. 

It's no secret that Mental Health Conditions are on the rise and although I don't expect university to be easy, I think that Mental Health Nurses are in desperate need and therefore, I don't think I could have picked a more rewarding career, suitable for me. Despite going through rounds of treatment and therapies myself, I don't know the science behind them or the structure of them and I am excited to learn about the different types of therapies, why and how they work and what conditions each therapy is most suited to.

Secondly, I look forward to having the opportunity of working in different settings because although Mental Health Nursing is predominantly focussed on Mental Health Conditions, there are so many different aspects and settings that I could be placed in, whether they be an adolescent community service, an inpatient unit for dementia or a forensic unit. I won't know what setting I want to work in until I have had a feel of them whilst doing placement at them and although at the minute, I feel that I would want to work with either children or within forensics, my choices could completely change.

I also look forward to working on placement which I have already slightly touched on, I am looking forward to learning hands on, to being able to help vulnerable individuals and to having no two days the same. I think that placement will be hard, there will certainly be challenging aspects to it but I think that I am as ready as I will ever be.

Next, I am looking forward to widening my knowledge on Mental Health Conditions, side effects and treatments. I feel that I personally already have quite a good understanding and knowledge of this, but I am looking forward to learning in depth about each condition. I am probably looking forward to the classroom aspect of the degree just as much as I am placement as I know that I am interested in the subject, and I think that there will be very few times where I find myself getting bored.

On the other hand, I am equally looking forward to learning about other aspects of Mental Health that I have very little knowledge on such as drugs, alcohol and forensics. I think that these subjects will be very interesting and will really open my eyes. I think that I will find these topics just as, if not more interesting than the things I already know.

Finally, I look forward to being able to give service users advice and support which may help them to hold on to a bit of hope, no matter what they have gone through. I know that for me, some of the members of staff that I have met throughout the years within services have been the most helpful to my recovery.

Thank-you for reading, Tay x

  2. The body then once again reacts to warn you. You disregard the warning, so your body decides to prevent warning you since it assumes you have no other option than to poison yourself so you have to boost the dose. That is called tolerance. Obviously, with each escalation in dosage, your body comes under more stress since it tries to cope. Legacy Healing Delray Beach

  5. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers https://royalcbd.com/product/cbd-oil-250mg/
