Aim. To determine effectiveness of clinical placements in non-mental health facilities in producing improvement in attitudes toward people with a mental illness and toward mental health nursing in nursing students. Background. Clinical placements in mental health settings have favourably impacted students’ attitudes and confidence in mental health settings. Placement shortages have created discussion about using non-mental health settings to gain this experience, as mental illness is common in all health settings. To date, no research findings support or refute the efficacy of non-mental health settings in influencing confidence and attitudes.
