Can you advise this student nurse?
“Hi. I’m not enjoying my placement at all.
“I have spent zero time with my mentor who doesn’t seem interested in me.
“I’ve been washing, dressing and toileting, which I am aware is part of the job. However, the buzzers constantly go off and a lot of staff just stand around the nursing station leaving me to answer them all.
“We are always short staffed and although we are supernumerary I am being treated as just a pair of hands.
“I just can’t face it going in.”
