Student nurses call for longer clinical placements


i totally agree with the comment on coming out of universities , Bring them back to the wards full time ,have them go to the university for there education and stay on the wards doing full time and PAY THE A LIVING WAGE . i feel that the idea of placing them into uni was a covert way to cut training costs. think of it this way would the NHS rather pay a student £16,000 living wage or the paltry £6,500 they receive at present. it is not rocket science.The students can work alongside the really good HCA who do the hands on care. .and shadow the trained nurse on the occasion of learning procedures medication ans so on.
