Student nurses call for longer clinical placements


What a shame that these students feel they are getting a raw deal, working in an area for just 4 weeks is just ridiculous. When I was a student nurse, ( numerous decades ago!) we did 12 week placements in clinical areas and all were relevant, however we were the main work force as well. Those of us who now work in General Practice and are a 'certain age' would be delighted to pass on our skills and knowledge to student nurses but they are usually allocated to the District Nurses and we never see them. A lot of us also have specialist skills and knowledge as well as teaching qualifications. Far more relevant than a Charity shop!
