What is obvious is that over the last five years, nursing had become an increasingly diverse profession. In the current wave of industrial difficulties, nursing professionals are battling with an identity crisis of what is required of them as beginning nurses. So preparation for practice now and the future within nursing curricula has struggled with a way to find a solution when it is entrenched with complexity, confusion, differing priorities and competing tensions. This paper is about exploring the tensions and dilemmas within nursing and how industry requirements are challenging curricula. The author will attempt to argue a conceptual framework for future curricula that not only celebrates the essence and identity of nursing but also offers a way forward in an educational sense that reflects the dynamic and evolving health care industry.
