Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, 16 (3). pp. 300-304. ISSN 13510126

We would like to revisit the discussion articulated
by Holmes (2006) from an Australian perspective
and more recently by Hurley & Ramsey (2008)
regarding the potential demise of mental health
nursing. Currently in the UK, the Nursing &
Midwifery Council (NMC) is reviewing nurse education.
The NMC state that the review is required
Changes in policy and delivery of healthcare will
allow us to ensure that nursing education across
all four countries enables nurses to meet the
future needs of patients. (NMC 2008a)
