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

Comment

rather than students just raising their concerns and feeling they are not being heeded, this problem is so widespread there needs to be an investigation to see why this is happening and address the root causes. It is not right in a caring environment such care and respect cannot be extended to students and all members of staff as it ultimately impacts on how patients are treated and the quality of care they receive. there needs to be open dialogue between everybody involved in life on the wards and beyond and nobody should feel intimidated or threatened to speak out. when this is the case learning and improving care at all levels and any innovations due to fresh input is totally stifled and creates a very tense and toxic working environment where there is a lack of trust and confidence in others and in the self.
