Summary of "Senior Nursing Students' Perceptions of Their Readiness for Practice Prior to Final Year Internship: Part 2-A Qualitative Perspective."

Preparing nursing students for their role as future registered nurses is an essential and complex endeavor. It is a responsibility that is shared between academic and clinical health care organizations. Arguably, the prevailing economic climate places additional pressures on the fiscal and manpower aspects of health care management. Maintaining a quality practice learning environment for students against this backdrop has become increasingly challenging. Indeed, students themselves have raised these concerns. The authors sought to explore these concerns further with the students, and this article will present the qualitative findings of a study exploring final-year students' perceptions of their readiness for practice in a school of nursing in the Republic of Ireland.
