Abstract

The study examines student nurse attainment of pass grades at both theoretical and practical level. The rationale for the importance of this research is that it would provide an insight into whether the levels of assessment in the first year are appropriate. This research may also demonstrate whether students are more likely to pass practical assessments assessed by mentors in practice or theoretical assessments marked by academic staff in universities. It is pertinent to re-examine the curriculum and type of assessments that pre-registration student nurses undertake, in light of the recent drive for adding in care and compassion into the nursing curriculum following the Mid-Staffordshire enquiry and the subsequent Frances report. There is evidence which has demonstrated that mentors out in practice rarely fail students in their practical assessments.
