Abstract
Part of a wider study that examines students’ third-year clinical experiences in ARC, this paper reports on 38 participant responses from four focus groups, to consider how the clinical experience can be strengthened to promote ARC as a desirable career pathway. We identify a number of missed opportunities in the roles, tasks and responsibilities that nursing students are offered. With the pending introduction of the Te Pūkenga unified nursing curricula combining 13 existing schools of nursing (Te Pūkenga, 2023), this paper argues that education providers are in a position to exert influence and engender positive change through working collaboratively with the ARC sector. Current practices are not responsive to improving the shortage of ARC nurse specialists. Results from this study can inform future options to improve nursing students’ ARC clinical experience.
