Abstract

Due to the substantial nursing shortage in Hong Kong, hospital based nurse training emerged again as one of the major sources of nurse education since 2008. It is therefore necessary to explore whether the reopened hospital based nursing schools can optimize students’ learning. To this end, the aim of the study is to investigate approaches to learning adopted by nursing students after completing a higher diploma programme offered by a local hospital. Method: A cross-sectional study comparing the learning approaches of newly admitted students and final year students of Higher Diploma in Nursing Programme at a local hospital in Hong Kong in 2012.
