The description of levels in nursing degrees : an illustration and analysis of the variations.
This study has analysed the level descriptors ofHigher Award degree programmes offered by a random sample of 15 colleges of nursing and midwifery in England..
The analysis revealed a wide variation in the way each level (1,2,3 and M) had been defined..
The variation occurred in a range of different ways.
The main categories of variation were :
The style of the descriptor ; the features defined by the descriptor ; the use of descriptors in the cognitive domain ; the use of dimensions of professional knowledge and practice such as autonomy and reflective practice ; and progression between the levels..
The context of the study is described and the implications of the study and possible ways forward are discussed.
