Use of Hub and Spoke model in nursing students’ practice learning

Laura Millar Associate Lecturer, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Care, Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh

Various forms of the Hub and Spoke model have been in existence in nursing programmes, providing nurses with the opportunity to observe a client or patient journey or to gain an overview of services available in the local area. This article reports on the implementation of a Hub and Spoke model of practice learning at Edinburgh Napier University for nursing and midwifery students. The article concentrates on the practical development of the infrastructure to support the model and some field-specific examples of implementation.
