    Default Nursing placement advice please

    Wow I think the Uni is really out of line - telling you to get counselling so you can manage yourself when people actively discriminate against you - WTF! Talk about institutionalising bigotry!

    I know this is the last thing you probably have the energy for OP but really what's happening here with you is awful. Please write a formal complaint to the hospital citing dates/times/quotes of what you have experienced with specific names. I hate to think that people like this get away with such revolting behaviour.

    Good luck for the new placement! I'm glad you will get to finish this year! I think it's terribly sad that you feel you need to get speech lessons to change your accent

    Um so can they not see the inconsistency with previous placements scores? you have been given highest marks previously and now all of a sudden you're no longer even safe to practice? I would point out that your previous pracs have all resulted in amazing results. You're fortunate at least you have this data.
    It's great you're offered another placement so soon but again if you were such a risk surely they would nt risk giving you this opportunity. Sorry I smell a cover up from their behalf. I
    Would hate to be a Muslim patient or another staff member at that hospital. In this day and age it's not acceptable

    Without naming and shaming is this a public or private ? Would it be worth going to your local member of its public?

    just a little update. .

    ive done a few weeks at my new placement and I can honestly say..

    its amazing
    I'm in the icu of the major hospital in my state and I feel so welcome. . like im part of the team .. no one makes rude comments to me or says nasty things. . in fact they say nice things they involve me in their conversations and talk to me at lunch.
    it makes me want to cry how sweet and helpful the staff are.

    I was telling my partner about how they are at this hospital and

    he says you're acting like it's the nicest thing in the world but it's just how normal people are.

    And this placement has made me see just how badly I was treated at my last placement, it was disgraceful and I honestly thought that I had a mental problem or something wrong with me because of how people were being to me and I was really depressed from that.

    But I actually smile at this placement I feel like a new person.

    thank you all so much for all the messages and advice... now I look back I can see that I really must do all I can to complain about the nurses I had to deal with.

    thank you all so so much

    So great to read your update. Who knows.... In the distant future you might use this experience to motivate you to get into a peer support role or student mentoring or something. Good luck. X

    Absolutely delighted!!l logged in just so I could reply. Was feeling very disillusioned with life/people when I read your original posts but your update is restoring my faith in humanity.
    Thanks so much for providing an update and I hope everything continues to go well for you both in your placement and in life in general.

    Warmest regards,

    carpe diem 2013.
