NET 2018 Conference: Their student life and our student life: Repertoires used by student nurses when talking about their university experience

University is an exciting time learning new friends and good fun (Morton and Tighe 2011). For student nurses university experiences may not be like this. This paper discusses findings from a study about student nurse professionalism. Students appeared ‘caught’ between two discourses: university student and student nurse. Lecturer talk deterred students from engaging in wider university experiences fearing breaching Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) professional behaviours. With moves to consumerism and self-funded students (DoH 2016) a balance is needed in lecturer talk to ensure NMC requirements are met while developing future practitioners with experiences in wider education initiatives.
