Abstract

This paper considers some of the initiatives taken by community nurses in England in implementing Project 2000 placements The data were obtained during an English National Board funded study in two phases The first phase involved a series of exploratory interviews, a postal questionnaire survey, and semi‐structured interviews with 15 managers In phase two, one Project 2000 demonstration district was studied in depth by means of interviews complemented by small‐scale questionnaire studies Community nurses had confronted a number of difficulties in implementing Project 2000 Among the most serious of these were shortage of time, poor communication with the colleges of nursing and lack of preparation As a consequence, community nurses took what they saw as independent approaches to students’ placements Many set their own aims and objectives for placements and produced written guidelines and teaching plans for students Many also asserted the importance of their role in the assessment of students’ practical work.
