1 Min Take-Away Tip For First Year Students: Ask Questions!Subscribe To Advice
60 sec quick tip for Student Nurses from Alex: ask questions. Don’t be afraid. Do it.
Hi guys, it's Alexandria Grace.
This video is just some advice for first-year Students who have never been on placement before or for Students returning to placement.
Don't forget to ask questions, and don't be shy to ask questions.
Honestly, it's something that I'm still working on myself.
Sometimes you may feel like you don't want to interrupt the Nurses by asking them questions about what they're doing, or what they're trying to show you. You might feel like you might sound stupid if you're asking something that you might be scared they think is a bit simple, or that it's something that you should know already.
But, honestly, no question is a stupid question.
It's better for you to ask something and find out the answer than to not know. And that could be something that's actually really important to know. So don't be afraid because no one's gonna judge you for it, and it's for your learning.
So ask questions!
