Abstract
By 2052, half of New Zealand’s population will be aged over 50. As older adults access every medical specialty, nurses will be at the forefront of the health response to the changing demographic. Therefore, they must be appropriately prepared and able to respond to the change. We must start with considering whether current undergraduate nursing curricula will adequately equip a future nursing workforce to address health requirements of older adults. In this presentation, the literature review informing a recently completed national stocktake of curriculum content related to aged care nursing will be summarised and gaps identified Observations • Debate is still present about the most effective organisation of the nursing curriculum • The relevance of considering placements in aged care as the site in which to learn ‘basic nursing skills’ • The hidden curriculum (academic and practitioner behaviour) is extremely powerful in the example it sets • More attention will need to be focussed on the nursing workforce pipeline • Nursing shortages are impacting the quality of supervision available
