Bradshaw (clinical practice, Oxford Brookes U.) describes the British apprenticeship model of nurse training, from its inception at St. Thomas's Hospital in 1860 until its ending in 1977 with the publication of the last national syllabus from the General Nursing Council for England and Wales. A sampling of topics includes the principles of apprenticeship described in Florence Nightingale's writings, an analysis of nursing textbooks, Parliamentary debates about nursing, the American influence on the British nursing tradition, and the process which led to the professional consensus on apprenticeship breaking. c.

A History of Apprenticeship Nurse Training in Ireland

Based on new research using previously unpublished sources, this compelling text is an in-depth study of the history of nurse education in Ireland, presenting a new authoritative account of the history of the traditional system of training in Ireland. Introduced as part of the reforms of hospital nursing in the late nineteenth century, apprenticeship nurse training was a vocational extension of secondary education. Residing outside the mainstream of higher educational provision it provided nurses with the knowledge and technical skills for sick nursing, whilst also functioning to socialise them into the role of hospital worker and introduce to them nursing’s value systems. This method of training provided a ready supply of skilled, efficient, inexpensive and loyal workers. In a chronological period spanning over a century, the book traces the development of modern nursing in Ireland, bringing the hidden role of nurses and nursing to the fore. It analyzes and describes the development, provision and gradual reform of hospital nursing, taking into account the social, cultural, political and economic factors that led to its establishment, its continuance, and eventual demise.

While vast numbers of nurses across the globe contribute in all areas of healthcare delivery from primary care to acute and long-term care in community settings, there are significant differences in how they are educated, as well as the precise nature of their practice. This comprehensive handbook provides a research-informed and international perspective on the critical issues in contemporary nurse education. As an applied discipline, nursing is implemented differently depending on the social, political and cultural climate in any given context. These factors impact on education, as much as on practice, and are reflected in debates around the value of accredited programmes, and on-the-job training, apprenticeship, undergraduate and postgraduate pathways into nursing. Engaging with these debates amongst others, the authors collected here discuss how, through careful design and delivery of nursing curricula, nurses can be prepared to understand complex care processes, complex healthcare technologies, complex patient needs and responses to therapeutic interventions, and complex organizations. The book discusses historical perspectives on how nurses should be educated; contemporary issues facing educators; teaching and learning strategies; the politics of nurse education; education for advanced nursing practice; global approaches; and educating for the future. Bringing together leading authorities from across the world to reflect on past, present and future approaches to nurse education and nursing pedagogy, this handbook provides a cutting-edge overview for all educators, researchers and policy-makers concerned with nurse education.

How to be a great nurse focuses on fundamental issues that are relevant to all nurses, across all countries, fields and areas of practice. It is essential reading for student nurses, qualified nurses, supervisors, assessors, managers and nurse academics, who all want the nursing profession to invest in the highest-quality care, firmly rooted in the real heart of nursing practice. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of great nursing, illustrated by case studies, self-assessment tools and exercises, and supported by suggestions for further reading and self-development. Chapter 1 explores the ‘head, heart and hands principles’ of nursing care. Chapter 2 focuses on the core values of nursing practice from a professional perspective, with an emphasis on personal integrity. Chapters 3 and 4 enable readers to reflect on the skills and emotional intelligence needed to be an effective nurse, highlighting the importance of communication and individual learning needs. Career progression, resilience and the support of other nurses are discussed in Chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 then draws many of these ideas together by looking at nursing practice from the perspective of those receiving care. This enables readers to deepen their learning and reflect on their own practice. The final chapter considers the future of nursing, and the new nursing roles that may be needed, to ensure that great nurses meet the varied demands of future practice scenarios. Contents include: • The meaning of great nursing • Core values for nursing • Learning to be a great nurse • Effective nursing • Making a successful career of nursing • Supporting and influencing others to be great nurses • Patient perceptions of great nursing care • Embracing the future of nursing

This electronic version has been made available under a Creative Commons (BY-NC-ND) open access license. The First World War was the first ‘total war’. Its industrial weaponry damaged millions of men and drove whole armies underground into dangerously unhealthy trenches. Many were killed. Many more suffered terrible, life-threatening injuries: wound infections such as gas gangrene and tetanus, exposure to extremes of temperature, emotional trauma and systemic disease. In an effort to alleviate this suffering, tens of thousands of women volunteered to serve as nurses. Of these, some were experienced professionals, while others had undergone only minimal training. But regardless of their preparation, they would all gain a unique understanding of the conditions of industrial warfare. Until recently their contributions, both to the saving of lives and to our understanding of warfare, have remained largely hidden from view. By combining biographical research with textual analysis, Nurse writers of the great war opens a window onto their insights into the nature of nursing and the impact of warfare.

This book reveals the ever-present challenges of patient care at the forefront of medical knowledge. Syphilis and gonorrhoea played upon the public imagination in Victorian and Edwardian England, inspiring fascination and fear. Seemingly inextricable from the other great 'social evil', prostitution, these diseases represented contamination, both physical and moral. They infiltrated respectable homes and brought terrible suffering and stigma to those afflicted. Medicine, Knowledge and Venereal Diseases takes us back to an age before penicillin and the NHS, when developments in pathology, symptomology and aetiology were transforming clinical practice. This is the first book to examine systematically how doctors, nurses and midwives grappled with new ideas and laboratory-based technologies in their fight against venereal diseases in voluntary hospitals, general practice and Poor Law institutions. It opens up new perspectives on what made competent and safe medical professionals; how these standards changed over time; and how changing attitudes and expectations affected the medical authority and autonomy of different professional groups.
