Abstract

Over several years at a widening-participation institution, a successful pre-entry programme was developed to provide a diverse body of nursing students with the academic skills necessary for HE transition. Restructuring and financial constraints led to the cancellation of the programme in 2011. This paper will report on research that aimed to evaluate the campus-based initiative and investigate the potential in developing an online/blended alternative.
