Abstract

Issues related to inequalities within nurse education are explored by drawing on issues related to oppression and exploitation in general education, higher education and to the specific ways nurses (pre-registration and post-basic) are selected and taught There is analysis of the way in which a holistic approach may be helpful in reducing inequalities, with specific reference being given to experiential learning and distance/open learning approaches The role of the education system in creating and maintaining inequalities is explored in terms of rights, chances and educational outcomes
