'Clearing up poo will not help me learn' - student nurses reject basic care


What a load of hogwash. I'm a third year student and I have no problem with perfoming fundamental care on patients and understand its importance. What I do not like as a student is being used as a HCA constantly, there are other things to learn along with fundamental care. Please stop attacking us students, I'm sick of the whole too posh to wash debate now. Next you will have ward sisters complaining because NQ's do not know how to do med rounds, set up IVI's etc because all they did in uni was wash patients.
