Should students have more exposure to other branches?
What do you think? Should your training include more time in other areas?
We were surprised to hear that not all student nurses have placements in other branches. However, most of those of you who have told us you found these placements helpful.
Exposure placements give you an insight in to another type of nursing, as well as giving you opportunity to meet patient groups you might not come across otherwise in your training.
What do you think?
- Should all students have placements in a branch other than their own?
- Should students be exposed to placements in all the main branches of nursing? Is there time during your training?
- Do “hub” placements give you enough time to properly experience an area?
