Extending your skills
  • See the unexpected as an opportunity to learn new skills
  • Ask for feedback from colleagues and friends on ways to improve (because you want to, not because you seek the approval of others)
  • Have a balanced life which includes activities outside of work
  • Be observant of those around you to gain skills in how others manage stress. Seek the assistance of someone you admire as a mentor or supervisor
  • Use the learning circles to seek the support of your peers. Who better to understand than your fellow students.
  • Enjoy your clinical placement experiences and make the most of the opportunities you encounter.
  • Remember we are here to support you and to see to your well being.
  • Recognize the importance of your well being, your confidence, and managing stress. Be aware of how this influences your performance.
  • Your well being is important because there is only one of you and you are the most important person to you
