Abstract:

This article explores the value of teaching clinical skills in pre-registration nurse education. It touches on stages of competence and the knowledge necessary to enable the learner to meet the standards of proficiency expected of registered nurses. Some contemporary issues around clinical skills teaching are discussed. How clinical skills can be taught and learnt as well as common problems encountered by learners and by educators are highlighted. This article also aims to stimulate discussion around the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s new standards of proficiency for registered nurses. It discusses how learners will be prepared to undertake all nursing procedures outlined in these standards within a changing healthcare education landscape and an increasingly complex health and social care environment.
