Enabling patients, service users and carers to participate in the education of students in the healthcare sector is widely espoused, both in the literature and by professional regulatory bodies. This article focuses on one aspect of this: the issue of patient involvement in the assessment of nursing students in the practice setting. The challenges and complexities that may arise are explored, and recommendations are made for further work in this area.
