Work-Based Learning Curricula in Nursing : A Literature Review

Gabb, Roger and Keating, Shay (2005) Work-Based Learning Curricula in Nursing : A Literature Review. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.


The goal of undergraduate nursing education is to prepare nurses for practice in a demanding and dynamic health care environment. Among other factors, the increased demand for nurses, the rapid growth in nursing knowledge, increased use of technology and the changing demographics of Australia's population have all resulted in significant challenges to educational institutions that are preparing nurses for practice. This report explores how some of these challenges can be met using curricular models that emphasise work-based learning and strong articulation between programs preparing division 2 and division 1 nurses.
