The weekend of a student nurse. 

Big night out? Partying all weekend? Having a social life…. not quite! My weekend is all university work and reading mixed in with my bank shifts. In case I haven’t mentioned it before, I have to work as well as placements and university to pay my bills. This isn’t a grumble… it sounds it haha! I adore my job! Sexual health and family planning 😍 absolutely love it. After 3 years and 3 months of being there, this is my social life. Seeing my work family and catching up.

So here I am, Saturday morning 9am, en route to work. I’m sat on the bus filling out my Asthma case study workbook for university. Every second counts when it comes to university study or work. I’ve just completed the COPD section in the book. That’s one task complete for next week ✅ amazing!


37 years old and I have finally achieved my dream of becoming a nurse. I had around 10 years healthcare experience before I started my nursing degree and then when I qualified I went straight into GP Nursing. I have a passion for sexual health, transgender health, LGBTQ+ health and all things shiny.
