`Constructing Communities for Learning in Nursing'

Nicola O Andrew / Dorothy Ferguson
Published Online: 2008-06-11 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1548-923X.1579

Working in communities is increasingly a feature of UK (United Kingdom) higher education. Within the last decade communities of practice (CoPs) have migrated from organisational development departments and evolved to become tools for practice based learning in educational settings. More recently, in nursing, the literature reports that CoPs have the potential to blend the skills of both academics and clinicians to transform and create new knowledge that is both scholarly and applicable to practice.

Keywords: communities of practice; practice based learning; transforming knowledge
