I wouldn't mind applying for occupational therapy in a few years as I think Id quite enjoy it as a career Ive worked on wards voluntary and as a nursing assistant so have had some experience in the healthcare field. Thing is though when I read about OT it emphasises that you need to have common sense whereas I severely lack it Im so dopy. At work Im always making mistakes and forget simple instructions etc but when I know what Im doing and have done it a few times Im fine. Does common sense improve the more you do the job or would it not suit me?

It's not really common sense that you're describing. Being forgetful and making mistakes is just something that you'll have to improve on! Put it this way; if it's the thing you REALLY want to do, do you reckon you could try and improve this skill yo get the career of your choice?

I'm not sure how much you do forget; I think everyone makes mistakes and stuff and that's entirely normal, but if it's excessive then that'd probably be something you'd need to work on for most jobs
