A practice role for nurse lecturers: an anachronistic concept?
In this podcast, Sally Glen reflects on the practice role of nurse lecturers. The wholesale movement of nursing education into higher education is now a decade old. The catalyst was Project 2000, which was a vision, not only a professional qualification, but an academic one, the diploma in higher education.
A review of the literature, however, identifies how the nursing curriculum has always been subject to continuous external pressure and is a balancing act between health service needs, the educational vision of the day and the available financial resources.
