I would like some feedback for an advocacy paper I'm writing for my issues class... The issue is this...Why are the majority of other healthcare providers in training (such as doctors, physiotherapists, pharmacists etc) financially compensated for their pregrad work but nurses are not offered any "stipend" for the time they put in? After all the purpose of the intern/pregrad/preceptorship is the same....
Does anyone know of any nursing schools globally that DO have paid internships for nurses? If so where?? Can anyone give me an idea of what the compensation packages are like for the other healthcare interns? I'd like any and all thoughts on this....for or against...or other questions I should be asking myself...???
We have our break coming up in a week or so and I'll be developing a very small survey that I can use to get some stats for this paper...if you or your collegues would like to give feedback on this subject please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
