Evaluations from Student Nurses “I have really enjoyed my 3rd clinical placement and there has been a lot of learning opportunities and resources available. I feel I have benefited a great deal from the whole experience.” “ Caring for older people within an environment that is their home has provided new learning opportunities to caring for the older person in a hospital environment.” “ Although I have worked with older people before there were still things I have learnt.” “I have learnt a lot of new nursing skills… this placement has certainly been a positive experience” I believe I set my mentor a challenge in converting my views of nursing homes and I’m pleased to say that she succeeded!”
