About one year ago I was fortunate enough to collaborate in an international meeting of studentnurses (English, German & Dutch). One thing that astounded me was that both German and English students had very short placements, about 6-8 weeks. That's about the amount of time I need to remember all the names of my colleagues. At Saxion (Bachelor of Nursing) a placement never is shorter then 10 (32 hour) weeks. 20 weeks of placement at the same facility is not unusual. We also need to have at least 2300 hours of placement prior to graduation. How are students (in the future) supposed the help 'reform' healthcare, if they cannot even glimpse at the networks behind the caregiving?
This says very, very little. Even the most basic 'need to know' aspects of research are absent in this article.
