New recruits lack basic skills says trust nursing director


As a second year nursing student, currently battling my way through Care Planning, I felt I had to respond to this. Our whole second year we will be learning different models of care planning, and although its tough work, I am getting my head around it and understanding the benefits. But it is not the students who are not implementing it! On every one of my placements I have never seen plans of care made in such depth and detail as we are taught because the nurses feel they have to rush through them to get everything else done. It makes it all the more confusing for students who are being taught one thing but being shown another. If more of the registered staff demonstrated thorough and accurate care plans it would lead the way for the students.
