Using a narrative framework in nursing students’ community placements

Using a narrative framework in nursing students’ community placements

Article topics: Community matron, Learning Zone, Narrative structure, Nurse education

This article discusses the applicability of a narrative framework to support student nurses’ learning when on placement with a team of community matrons.
A narrative framework involves gathering, evaluating and discussing information and the rationale for using one here was that it helped the students think critically about what they had experienced while on placement and provided a specific language for them to make sense of their surroundings, which would in turn influence their subsequent decisions and actions.
