    ... Hi, I really need some help.

    I am in my third year of nursing and still nothing has popped out to me as AH THATS WHAT I WANT TO DO!! So, I've turned to you, the people of the internet to help me
    Here's a small amount about me in relation to nursing:
    - I am quiet and shy
    - I love science and anatomy/physiology and pharmacology
    - I don't really know how to talk to people older than me
    - I did consider children's nursing
    -I like caring for people and making them happy
    -I get bored easily

    No placement I have done has popped out as a wow this is right for me! Since being little I have always wanted to be a nurse but now I've done it for a bit I find some of it a bit tedious, same-y and not enough science.
    I want to work somewhere that challenges my brain like puzzles not my emotional state (I'm always tired) I always hear negative things about nursing and the NHS and tbh I think it has turned me negative.
    Do you think nursing isnt for me? Or will I find something I enjoy?
    I toyed with the idea of becoming a paramedic and now I wonder if I shouldve done that or even something like biomed or physiology.
    Could anyone offer any advice I feel like i'm having a bit of a mental breakdown
    TY- F x

    Why not do a master's in anatomy and physiology? Our A&P lecturer for SLT trained initially as a nurse and then did her master's and doctorate in A&P. You can bank work as a nurse in the meantime as well. Sounds ideal from my perspective.

    Hi I find this interesting, what role can you then go into with the A&P degree?

    Hello, I am in a similar position to the person in this post. Could I ask (may sound silly) what exactly is the role of a research nurse? and would you need a masters? thnx

    These kinds of degrees tend to lead to academic and lecturing careers or commercial research roles. I know someone who is doing something in law off the back of it, some sort of consultant role but I'm not sure what. But if you're interested in A&P it's an interest worth nurturing and seeing where it takes you. Could lead you to a more advanced role in the NHS. Or you could look at becoming a biomedical scientist for the NHS perhaps. If you can pick up nursing shifts while you do it you'll be in clover.
