Shifting away from hierarchical binary opposition

    Abstract

    This paper starts a discussion amongst nurse educators internationally regarding the nature of curricula for initial nursing licensure. Nursing is compelled by traditional views of nursing into taking a long-established and expected place in the health care hierarchy, which is reflected in current curricula. In order to establish a re-valued nursing currency within healthcare, nursing educators are required to re-examine these established norms and re-design these curricula, based on the premise that nursing is now set in a complex and unpredictable system.
