    Itzhak Ditzian, B.A. and Moshe Bracha, B.A., Research Assistants, participated in the evaluation study.


This paper has endeavoured to describe a longitudinal learning experience required in the post-basic baccalaureate nursing programme at Tel-Aviv University, Israel. It grew out of the need to help students internalize and integrate studies, apply theory in practice and to function as change agents. An evaluation of the programme as perceived by students and graduates brought to light problems and suggestions for improvement and to a large degree confirmed the value of this programme.
