Abstract

Currently, mental handicap nursing reflects a scenario whereby major advances have occurred within a relatively short time scale. Sophistication not previously recognised has created an educational requirement for a clear relationship between knowledge, skills and assessment. Student nurses are expected to develop their skills through reflective practice, and it is the intention of this study to analyse the place of practical skills assessment in the educational and professional growth of students as they progress through their programme of training.
