“Coming into nursing after my degree in English Literature felt a bit daunting at first, as they’re two very different worlds; however I quickly found that a lot of the skills and academic techniques I learnt were transferable. Nursing, like any degree, is largely about critical thinking, so the ability to question and think around subjects is vital both in university and out in practice.”
