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


Sadly I think this article highlights another example of the minority runing the reputation of everyone else! I have encountered student nurses who feel that basic nursing care is very much below their role, and that such tasks should be performed by HCA's. Fortunately this has been a minority of students who think this! Not all students should be tarnished with the same brush! Most are more than willing to get involved with all aspects of patient care!
