Abstract

The uses of theories and models in nursing have been emphasised in curriculum development for Project 2000 courses over the past five years. In debates about the inclusion of the theoretical ideas in nursing as part of the foundation programme for students undertaking the P2000 course, two questions have exercised the minds of curriculum development teams:
  1. 1.

    Is it important whether or not students are introduced early during their Common Foundation course to theories and models of nursing?

     
  2. 2.

    How would such knowledge at the early stage of their education and training be related to the practice given the eighteen months’ gap between the Common Foundation Programme and the choice of a Branch in which students will subsequently practise?
