Can you advise this student nurse?
“I absolutely hate my current placement. The staff are horrible, there is nothing for me to do and I come in each day with that feeling of dread.
“I don’t want to give any details but I’m on an outpatient clinic and because I’m in my first year the staff don’t think I can do anything except watch – usually. I normally wander around and ask someone if I can watch but they always make it clear that I’m in the way and it would be better if I asked someone else.
“I honestly have tried to get involved and to win staff over, but they don’t make it easy. One of the nurses suggested that the bag charm on my handbag was a sex toy which they all found hilarious but obviously massively embarrassed me.
“Basically I know I just have to grin and bear it but any tips for making the most of this sort of placement?”
