Abstract

This article discusses research undertaken to investigate the journey that student nurses make who have previously worked as healthcare assistants (HCAs). It briefly identifies the research process, followed by in-depth discussion of one of the themes that emerged from the study: the difference between a student nurse and a healthcare assistant.

The author chose to explore this theme in depth because more and more HCAs are undertaking the undergraduate degree programme to become a registered nurse. This article should help to inform them of the changes in role they can expect before embarking on their career progression.
