Jillian McCarthy Senior lecturer, University of Chester, Warrington
Maxine Holt Senior lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester

This article discusses the challenges faced by two nurse educators when incorporating current health policy into a new pre-registration nursing curriculum, using public health and e-learning as examples. The article, which features the results of preliminary work from the authors’ doctoral studies, includes summaries of students’ discourses about e-learning and public health and how these subject areas are perceived by learners. Practical solutions to the challenges encountered are suggested.
