Nursing school clinical assignments - elder care

  1. I was recently reviewing an article (Portnoy, F. L., & Tanner, F. (1988). Preparing nurses to care for the elderly: Clinical placements in nursing homes (ED 376 757). Retrieved from where they talk about how the clinical placement affects how the student views caring for the elderly. I know that when I did my nursiing home rotation, had I not all ready worked in long-term care, there was nothing presented during my rotation that would have attracted me to it. Does anyone have any insight of their own into this?
