The article examines the link between education and the nursing practice. British nurses were trained without attending formal lectures or receiving schooling of any type a hundred year ago. The first preliminary nurse training course was established by Great Britain's Royal Infirmary, in Glasgow. Topics include a chronology of the development of nurse practitioners since the early 1900s and how nursing education can be improved, such as encouraging creativity in nursing.
