Nurse education is being rethought as the global shortage of nurses continues and as efforts are made to prepare a sustainable nursing workforce in developed countries.
Australian and New Zealand tertiary institutions are leading purposeful change aimed at improving the prestige of nursing and at preparing a world-class nursing workforce for the future.
As faculties of nursing strive to improve standards and to facilitate change, conceptual models for nurse education informed by post-modern thinking, evidence-based nursing, preparation of advanced practitioners (including nurse practitioners), high fidelity simulation, innovation in education in clinical settings and interprofessional education are receiving increasing attention.
This special issue informs the important issue of nurse education, highlighting the progress made in these areas as well as the many challenges faced in education and training curriculum development and delivery.
Nurse academics and educators, service managers, clinical nurses, and students will benefit from this examination of nurse education, which informs of the progress and challenges in nursing as a discipline.
Advances in Contemporary Nursing Education is essential reading for all concerned with the constraints on innovation and change caused by lack of financial and other resources; priorities that take precedence over teaching; faculty shortages; the poor image of nursing among potential students; and the lack of sophistication in workforce.
