In order to prepare nurses for their responsibilities as nursing care providers, nurses get both theoretical and practical training. In nursing schools, experienced nurses and other medical professionals who are qualified or experienced for instructional activities present this education to student nurses. The majority of nations provide nurse education programmes that may be applicable to both general nursing and more specific fields including mental health nursing, paediatric nursing, and post-operative nursing. The average length of a programme leading to autonomous registration as a nurse is four years. Additionally, post-qualification courses in nursing-related specialties are offered through nurse education. A student of nursing may enrol in a course of study leading to a diploma, an associate degree, or a bachelor's degree in nursing.

During past decades, the changes in education have replaced the more practically focused, but often ritualistic, training structure of conventional preparation. Nurse education integrates today a broader awareness of other disciplines allied to medicine, often involving inter-professional education, and the utilization of research when making clinical and managerial decisions. Orthodox training can be argued to have offered a more intense practical skills base, but emphasized the handmaiden relationship with the physician. This is now outmoded, and the impact of nurse education is to develop a confident, inquiring graduate who contributes to the care team as an equal. In some countries, not all qualification courses have graduate status [1].

Prior to Florence Nightingale, nursing was often thought of as an apprenticeship, frequently taken up by young women in religious institutions like convents. However, there have always been some male nurses, particularly in mental health facilities.

The first nursing school in the world is established by Valerie de Gasparin and her husband Agenor de Gasparin in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1859. La Source High School.

At the time, Ethel Gordon Fenwick and a few other nurses supported institutionalised nursing registration and programmes that had their formal roots in higher education as opposed to being exclusive to hospitals. Although it's unclear who offered the entry-level degree programme, institutions in the United States offer nursing programmes [2].

A World Health Organization (WHO) study group on the education of nurses convened in Brussels in November 1955 and issued a number of suggestions, one of which was to "Establish at least one experimental school of nursing in each nation." In the UK, the University of Edinburgh's first department of nursing studies.

One of the earliest English universities to offer the education at the degree level was the University of Manchester, which is not to be confused with King's College London's nursing school, which is a direct descendent of Nightingale's school [3,4].

When the Manchester College of Midwifery and Nursing was integrated into the university's Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry, and Nursing in 1996, nursing instruction at the institution saw a significant expansion.

Two mature students over the age of twenty-one have the option of entering upon completion of a college Access course, and experience in jobs related to health/nursing assistance are also worthy of consideration for entry into the course. Entry level courses, sought by most universities, are frequently five Standard Grades/GCSEs, including English, math, and a science (preferably biology), and two Mature students [5].


Currently, a three-year nursing education is offered in the UK. Students can choose to study adult, child, mental health, learning disabilities, or combinations of these the course is split evenly between classroom instruction and fieldwork in a healthcare facility. Students study anatomy, physiology, and fundamental health care throughout their foundation year in college. Following that, newly qualified nurses must register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council in order to submit employment applications and engage in legal practise.
