Researcher: Forcing parents to send their children to nurseries is based on a limited understanding of how language skills develop

Society and the healthcare sector are changing – and the nursing study programme is under pressure. Two researchers from Roskilde University are involved as Rigshospitalet (Denmark’s largest hospital) experiments with how to train future nurses. The expectations for what a newly educated nurse should be capable of are too high, and the traineeship programmes at clinics are under pressure, the researchers point out.
