so I've been browsing on Instagram to follow student nurses and I have realised that a lot more students were doing child nursing instead I'd adult. is that the case or is it just those who whose to make an Instagram about their journey.
also how is the proportion of mature students in your cohort to those who have just left school?

This is probably just that more of them have published it on Instagram. There are actually more adult nurse students in actual life - this is because there are more adult nurse places at uni. The proportion of students on each field tends to be in proportion to the proportions on the NMC register - more adult nurses than child/MH and fewest being LD.
With mature students, I'd probably say my cohort was 70:30. Of that 70% "mature" it was aged 20-45.

not really. its just another area same as mental health. child nursing is tough emotionally we simply could not do it. yet have no issue with adult nursing. dont enter it thinking its going to be a softer version of nursing its the opposite.
