    Chester Uni i'm driving there everyday atm - not sure whether to move out come summer time though. As it takes 45mins - 1 hour to get there!

    Haha I bet in 2 months It will be different! We got fitted for uniform on first day yey.

    We have just had talks about really boring stuff so far! I will go on placement 24th May! but it's only for 4 weeks!

    I thought i would be in uni 6 weeks & placements 6 weeks but it's a lot different to what I thought!

    ahhh i hate it when people wee on you... haha not nice. I was getting this man ready once and he goes 'i'm dribling' so i looked straight at his mouth and nothing was there then I heard & felt him peeing on my foot! haha

    it's such a ridiculous concept, evidence is tedious as it is without having to write an essay about it.

    BTW, I'm attempting my first ever nursing standard practice portfolio piece..you know they have these articles, and you work along with it, and produce a bit about what you learnt and soemtimes they get published, but you still get this certificate of 'learning' about that topic, ive decided to do it about CVP as i came across it for the first time on placement on friday...!

    ah hope so. I really struggle with writing essays - I'm having a dyslexic test soon because in my last uni I did one that came out that I was but I was too embarassed to get any help! This time I think i'm gonna need it - sick of struggling.

    It's just a poster - they already give you the template you just have to change it. So sounds fairly simple, it's about evidence based practise - you pick a subject like handwashing and describe about the evidence that proves its the best way to do it.
    I'm just really gonna struggle with the reference side - it's like whatever you write now has got to be referenced! gonna take me a while to get used to it.

    Sounds like an idea, might aswell get some help if you're entitled.

    Have you had a look at your school/course handbook? They tend to have guidelines for how they like you to reference things and examples etc so you can follow that.
