Why are so many student nurses experiencing “bad” placements?


One of my co mentors is not teaching me, ignoring me and when I try to seek other avenues of learning, she is blocking me from learning clinical skills, using me as a pair of hands and offering me to others as well as gossiping about me twice in one day. I feel ganged up on as she uses her seniority to manipulate my learning and this extreme stress is causing a return of my panic attacks. The educators and PDN are not interested to help change this attitude. I'm being accused of not wanting to do as I'm told. When I don't achieve my objectives the educator is called in and action plan is set. If I were given the opportunity to learn I won't have to go through this. I'm fed up and I am seriously thinking of quitting as this harrassment continues.
