The tensions between education and models of nurse preparation.

Kenny, Gerard


Gerard Kenny


This article seeks to explore the relationship that has evolved between the training and education models of nurse preparation since the creation of the NHS. Through the process of professional reflection it intends to investigate how each model develops the profession and enhances care delivery. It seeks to move away from an either/or approach that has dominated the nurse education debate, and instead seeks to identify the potential benefits, as well as the tensions, of trying to integrate these models into a modern context. In so doing, this article hopes to inform practitioners about the debate so that they can engage with it more fully and effectively.
