The provision of health care and healthcare education in the UK is undergoing rapid change and development, and is subject to intense market forces. A reduction in the amount of money being spent on nurses’ education and training, together with changes in working practices in health care, are affecting the provision of healthcare education significantly. This article gives an overview of the changes influencing providers of pre and post-registration healthcare education, and describes how education providers are generating income through enterprise activity.
