Preparing students for palliative care


I am a mature student nurse going into my final year. I have since the start of my training voiced my concerns regarding placements of newly recruited student nurses,being subjected to palliative environments without the benefit of guidance from university. Many nursing students dread the prospect of facing families of a dying loved one and it is so important to have had the experience of a good mentor to ease them through this difficult situation. End of life care should be as important as new life because as we are all told we only have one chance to get it right.
