Exploring learning opportunities for nursing students in prison settings

Warren Stewart Senior lecturer, Joint appointment between the Faculty of Health and Social Care, London South Bank University, Department of Health, London

Custodial environments have traditionally been overlooked as centres of learning for students from all health and social care backgrounds. Recent research has identified many advantages of placements in custodial settings, both in terms of student learning and developing good practice within custodial environments. This article aims to alert nursing students to some of the unique clinical experiences that can be gained within prison healthcare settings.
