(a) Explain the differences between modern day nursing education and the old hospital based training model.

The difference between modern day nursing is that nurses learn the theories, decisions and procedures, codes of ethics before gaining practical experience in the workplace compared to old hospital based training, where student nurses would live in the hospital, learn different techniques and then the theory would then be explained after the process has been indicated. The training would often be conducted by the skills needed on the ward on the day, instead of the range of skills and knowledge that is taught with today’s evidence based training (Koutoukidis, Stainton & Hughson 2013, pp 4-19) (b) When did the Diploma of Nursing become the nationally recognised entry level qualification for Enrolled Nurses in Australia? Why did this occur?

The diploma of nursing was nationally recognized in 2010, it was introduced with the establishment of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority (AHPRA). This was beneficial as before each state and territory had their own system and standards and this was not practical for national management .This was conclusive evidence when nurses would transfer jobs between states and find that the skill sets were not equal to other states.
