Having had my 1-2-1 with my boss yesterday on my performance in managing an acute Surgical ward, she informs me that she expects me to commence a course in Critical Care at degree level commencing September. The reason being our surgical ward is being converted into a High dependancy Unit (like an ITU) and she wants me to manage it and gain the necessary skills. I already have a Diploma in Higher Ed. (Nursing Studies) but I am crapping myself at the thought of having to start another course at degree level....all the disertations and presentations......YIKES!!! Not sure I can hack this.
Its 13 years since I did my initial nurse training...... oh lordy.
Has anyone else here completed a degree? and how was it?
(ps....please don't tell me it was awful, I need encouragement here!!)
