Optional Fields

Nurse education in Ireland has gone through significant changes in the past 10 years. What is the background behind the move from the nurse tutor to the nurse lecturer at third level? The purpose of this paper is to provide an over-view of the pathway of undergraduate nurse education from the perspective of nurse educators. It will look at the transition from hospital-based nurse education to University and Institute of technology - led education. Bearing this transition in mind, one must ask where to now for the nurse educators?
