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


Majority of placements will only allow 1 or 2 student on at one time so that you are able to achieve your competencies and gain as much from your placement as possible. As for the weekends - you are expected to experience ALL shift patterns as they all differ in one way or another which will include weekends/nights/long days. So you and the other ST/N's should sit down and work out who will work which days and when. I think putting yourself forward will come in time, especially if this is the first time you've worked in the Health Care field before. If you have a placement rep at University and at you placement, it may be worth chatting to them too. Work through your competencies and see what tasks you can be doing to achieve them.
