Abstract

The goal had been to replace lengthy text based information with interactive graphics as a visual media from which students will then uncover and explore historical developments, reflecting on the relevance to current practice.

We have created 3 primary resources using digital images, which have been structured chronologically into 3 timelines that portray:

• The social context of child health
• A history of children in health care
• A history of nursing uniform
through which individuals can then explore the development of the role of the children's nurse.

The content is further supported by:

• An activity section to stimulate group based activities, discussion and evaluation.
• Additional material has been identified through inclusion of text material based in relevant WWW sites.
• National map of children’s hospitals and html links.
• A text reference section.
• References and acknowledgements.
To develop the activity and learning component the discussion board will be accessed to this site by a direct link to our Web CT site, but the access will be limited to students registered onto relevant modules.

This material has been created to support pre-registration nursing students in their first theoretical module. To introduce to the history of children’s nursing, and to lead students to understand some of the developments that have led to current practice in today's health care service and in a typical 21st century children's ward. The activities and subsequent discussions will be supported within a virtual learning environment.
