Credit Accumulation and Transfer Schemes

Mike McManus Senior Lecturer, School of Health and Community Studies. Sheffield City Polytechnic

The implications of Credit Accumulation and Transfer Schemes for the nursing profession are discussed in this article, the first of two on the subject.

Nursing Standard. 6, 7, 28-30. doi: 10.7748/ns.6.7.28.s33
