Hi, I'm a new member and recently started another thread about uni placements, and I've referred to bullying on my course. I was wondering if anyone had seen an article in the last week about some research done on student nurses getting abuse and bullying on their clinical placements? Can't get link to work, report was on ABC website and was done by Murdoch Uni.
As bullying is a OH&S-related issue, I was wondering what others have experienced on pracs when it comes to OH&S. If you're an employee, then you can go to Fair Work Australia; if you're a student, you can't. If you're an employee and injured in your workplace, you're covered by workers' comp; if you're a student injured on the prac, you're not.
