    I'm starting a new job tomorrow as a clinical support worker in a Stroke Rehab ward and I'm a bit nervous, truth be told. I'm under no illusions that it will be hard graft, as the patients in a stroke ward can be highly dependant. I've worked in a psychiatric hospital before, and also in long term care wards, care of the elderly, orthopaedics etc, but I'm a bit worried that I'll feel out of my depth at first.

    I've got an unconditional for Medicine, starting in September, and I think this will provide me with some really good experience but, at the same time, I'm a wee bit nervous lol. Anyone have any general advice for starting?
