Stress and anxiety driving nursing students to seek support

Flavia Munn @Flavers Assistant editor, Nursing Standard

Yet a Nursing Standard investigation also reveals that many universities do not monitor the reasons why students look for help

Almost one in three UK nursing students who seek support from university services have anxiety, stress or depression, an exclusive Nursing Standard investigation reveals. Of the 2,713 nursing students who contacted university support services, including counselling, in the past year, 818 were experiencing one of the three conditions. In comparison, about one in seven medical students who contacted university services (358 of 2,682), needed help for anxiety, stress or depression between April 2016 and March 2017.
