Where are they now ? The career paths of graduates from post-registration degrees in nursing in England.
Degree courses for experienced nurses through part-time study are relatively new in Britain.
The first course started in 1979, but their number has dramatically increased during the past decade, particularly in England.
Due to this increase it is important that analysis of career paths of the graduates should occur.
As no suitable questionnaire was found from the literature one was devised.
Posting this to all graduates from three courses gave a response from 113 graduates (77.4%). Results showed graduates to be continuing in nursing.
They showed life-long motivation to study and felt personal growth from the degree.
Movement of graduates predominantly from clinical areas into nurse education was found.
