About this Event

The Future of Nurse Education Practice: Imagining the art of the possible

In this lecture Professor Leigh will discuss her thoughts around future curriculum possibilities for Nursing. The nursing profession requires a clear vision— to be bold about the role of the nurse and be clear about the future of practice learning and nurse education.

Thinking about the pipeline for registered nurses and the transition of students to registered nurse: What if we were to create a perfect nurse education curriculum? Something that one could argue is currently elusive.

What if Higher Education Institutions, such as Salford, and their healthcare partners were not constrained by student fees and numbers, or by securing practice learning opportunities for all students?

What could we do with nurse education practice? Yes, we would have to take risks, but let’s just think about what might be possible if we were able to be bold and brave with our curriculum design. In a publication (Roberts and Leigh 2020), both authors are clear that we are advocates of graduate nurses who are critical thinkers. We are also clear that, during their pre-registration nursing programme, students must be provided with a quality nursing curriculum and practice learning experience.

Conversations are taking place around the issue of student nurse work contracts, paid learning experiences and student rights. Currently debated is whether perceived low-paid, on the-job nursing student training will take the profession backwards.
