Student nurses call for longer clinical placements


I've just completed my general placement and hated it. The actual work I didn't mind but the team did nothing for my impression of general nurses. I was belittled due to my choice of branch and my mentor continually took the mickey out of me for fainting on one shift. To top it off I didn't have any kind of assessable contact with my mentors, only when she was walking out the door on my last shift and I managed to collar her for 60+ signatures. What we need are better regulated placements. As some placements have staff without a clue.
