Hi
I'm looking to possibly doing a nursing degree part time at Portsmouth University next year.

I'll be 44 years old next year with school age children and have multiple Sclerosis so I won't manage full time.

How is it? I need to know if I'll cope!

Thanks for any replies :-)

I'm wandering how much time could lornies lose in non attendance for the university studies plus the placements themselves as difficult sometimes to make up any lost time through absenteeism.
NMC wouldn't give her the registration/ pin without completion of every hour that will be required to complete.

It's a full hands on course is nursing, it can be stressful at times dealing with situations out with your own control like bereavement while on shift. Angry patients and relatives.

Coping with nightshifts, dayshifts and weekends working as well as the long hours she'll be working on any hospital placements as could be doing say a 13 hours shift or split shifts of 8 hours per day as each hospital trust has its own working pattern's.

I will give the OP the credit where it's due in wanting to give it a go but she'll have to be committed in doing it.

A NHS registered midwife.
