Student nurse theatre placements. The new curriculum.

Author information

  • 1School of Nursing & Midwifery Studies, University of Wales College of Medicine, Cardiff.


Following the implementation of the Fitness for Practice (FFP) nurse education curriculum, opportunities are available for student nurses to return to the operating theatre environment during their surgical module. This follows a ten-year absence in most parts of Wales. This article investigates what realistic placement objectives are available for student nurses in Wales and how close mentor supervision can enhance the learning process and promote the clinical experience of theatre nursing.
