The Educating the Nurse of the Future report details the outcomes of the Independent Review of Nursing Education submitted to Minister Hunt by Emeritus Professor Steven Schwartz in September 2019.
The literature reviews reflect the issues outlined in the Terms of Reference for the Review and were used to help inform the public consultation and stakeholder engagement that underpinned the Review.
The Centre for Health Development and School of Nursing, University of Wollongong, completed the series of literature reviews.
The reviews present a summary and analysis of national and international literature on the following topics:
- fitness for purpose, work readiness and transition to practice
- nursing as a career choice
- clinical skill development
- future directions in health care delivery
