Commentary: The Case for National Standards

Carole Orchard

[This paper is a commentary on Collaborative Nursing Education Programs: Challenges and Issues by Anita E. Molzahn and Mary Ellen Purkis.]

The paper "Collaborative Nursing Education Programs: Challenges and Issues," developed by Molzahn and Purkis, provides insight into a "bold experiment" that has been implemented in Canadian nursing education - an experiment that has moved nursing forward in achieving the baccalaureate in nursing as our entry to practice. The authors provide insight into significant issues that affect such collaborations. Normally, such an experiment would have as a component a comprehensive national evaluation plan. But to date there have not been any such evaluative studies related to these partnerships. There has, however, been evaluation at program levels related to curricular outcomes.
