Abstract Nursing is the largest qualified professional workforce in the UK with TV programmes, films, books and other media sources frequently informing views of nursing roles. This study examines first year pre-registration nursing students’ perceptions of community nursing roles, using a qualitative design and questionnaire. Pre-registration nursing students took part from a university in Northwest England: a mean of 240 and 68.5% across all questions. Of those invited 267 were adult, 53 mental health and 30 child students. Data were collected using an online questionnaire across two groups and analysed thematically. Four questions were considered relating to students’ knowledge on community nursing. Results uncovered gaps in the knowledge and community roles were perceived as less dynamic than secondary care roles, correlating to clinical tasks and popularised media sources. Results provided insight into student nurse perceptions, offering an understanding from which to construct a more inclusive community focused nursing curriculum.
