The Nursing and Midwifery Council recommends that pre-registration nurse education programme providers involve lay people in the student selection process. The School of Nursing and Midwifery at Keele University undertook a project to develop and evaluate the inclusion of lay people in the pre-registration recruitment and selection process. This article discusses the development and evaluation of the project and provides recommendations for practice.
