Abstract

This article examines the development of the competency based approach to assessment in practice within pre-registration nursing. An historical perspective to the approach is given, including brief descriptions of the different models that have been used in nurse training and how these relate to the current system of nurse education. The approach is examined in relation to government professional and educational requirements. Implications for practice are discussed, taking into consideration staffing levels, training and availability of mentors and assessors, and the impact these have on nurse training.
