Summary report of a symposium on higher education in nursing

World Health Organization The Hague, 30 October-3 November 1972


Since this summary report first appeared, a number of innovations in higher education in nursing have taken place in Europe at basic, post-basic, undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Whether or not this kind of education for nurses can be argued to be ‘Learning for Reality’ (Bendall 1976) will no doubt be a topic of fascination for future researchers. Nevertheless, participants at the symposium believed that it would lead to many benefits to health services delivery.
