Abstract

Aim The aim of the study was to
investigate student nurses’ experiences of
Project 2000.
Method A sample of 76 students completed
a questionnaire twice, once at the beginning
of the course and again after one year. A
second questionnaire comprising rating scales
of how stressed they felt, was completed by a
sample of 30 students weekly for the first
year of the course.
Results Seven areas of concern were
identified: the theory component of the
course, assessments, clinical practice,
financial pressures, time management,
personal development and personal
difficulties.
Conclusion Sufficient data were generated
to suggest that the experiences of Project 2000
students in other institutions are likely to be
similar to those reported in the study.
Recommendations for teachers, clinical staff
and students are made.
