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


It's such a shame that any student should experience this and can potentially taint future opportunities for them. What about mentors? They have some responsibility here surely or should be flagging it as a concern to their managers. A comprehensive plan at the start of the placement with regular meetings throughout should pick up any concerns., And even if the mentor says that there may be times when this all goes pear shaped for whatever reason, at least the student is aware and as long as it's not a regular or longstanding occurrence it may be possible to get back on track..
