The nurse game is strong on Tik Tok - It’s only been the last few months that I’ve dug into the platform and fallen head-over-heels with #nursetok as it’s been aptly named.

a post by Aris Grigoriou/Study Medicine Europe Everyone, even people who have long since finished school, can benefit from learning more about themselves in order to level up how they process information. Schools so often fall into a regimented, monolithic approach to learning and teaching that most of us finish years of formal education with no real idea of our individual learning style. By the time we’re in higher education or our first post-graduate jobs, we’re basically on auto-pilot with how we approach learning new things. Contrary to how most education systems function, there are actu ..read more
