Do student nurses value clinical placements in nursing homes?

Do student nurses value clinical placements in nursing homes?

Student nurses often report that being placed in a nursing home does not help them develop the level of knowledge and clinical skills required to work in acute inpatient or other specialist settings. Indeed, a study by Stevens (2011) reported that on graduation only 3 of the 150 students who participated stated a  desire to work with older people.
