Abstract

Lecturer in Nursing, University of Mattchester The Diploma in Community Nursing course was established in the University of Manchester in 1959. It was an experimental basic nursing course which sought to achieve correlation of the theory and practice of nursing, and to include district nursing and health visiting experience in the basic course. As well as being awarded the diploma, the student qualified as a registered nurse, district nurse and health visitor. The course was reviewed in 1964 and, as a result ofthe experience gained in the five experimental years, changes were made in the programme, one main effect of which was to improve the integration of community nursing and hospital nursing experiences. Negotiations which began in the early 1960s culminated in 1969 when the university approved further revisions of the course, resulting in the award of the degree of Bachelor of Nursing, the first such degree in a United Kingdom university. In 1975 a questionnaire was administered to former students ofthe Diploma in Community Nursing and Bachelor of Nursing courses, who had completed the courses during the years 1963-72; that is the first 10 intakes of students. The number is small, 81 out ofa possible 84 individuals
