‘Since when did being pushy become a nursing skill?’


Firstly i would say not every nurse is cut out for acute nursing i know in not. I personally feel its part of being a mentor to ensure the student has good experience and meets their objectives. i feel the key is to be enthusiastic but not pushy be assertive but not ignorant. When there's so many students on placement everyone is fighting for the chance and opportunity of experiences but you will get them in your training.i hated one placement and just kept my head down and didn't meet any objectives but the next one made up for it. Use bad experiences to reflect and learn from to try and improve and understand why they happened and how things could have gone better .... Turn bad into good experiences.
