Abstract

• The purpose of this study was to develop a framework for implementing supernumerary learning in a preregistration Diploma in Nursing programme in an Irish hospital. Experiences of student nurses (n=31), clinical nursing staff (n=8) and nurse teachers (n=4) were explored, regarding the introduction of supernumerary status in this programme. • An action research approach, employing phenomenological methods for gathering and analysing the data, was used to carry out the study. • A framework for implementing supernumerary learning in a Diploma in Nursing programme was developed, based on the study. • This framework reflects the level of knowledge, skills and attitudes of individuals partaking in supernumerary learning, and the role of the supervisor in the clinical area at each level. • Possible implications of the changing role of the student nurse for nursing practice for education, management and research are suggested.
