The interviews focused on the way in which the student nurses had learned in their practice placements.(More)
This study reports a comparative survey of mature students undertaking pre-registration undergraduate nursing education in Australia and Scotland. The study aimed to explore comparisons between the course-related and course-related financial difficulties faced by mature students in two very different educational and funding systems.

Shewanella frigidimarina NCIMB400 is a non-fermenting, facultative anaerobe from the gamma group of proteobacteria. When grown anaerobically this organism produces a wide variety of periplasmic c-type cytochromes, mostly of unknown function. We have purified a small, acidic, low-potential tetrahaem cytochrome with similarities to the cytochromes c(3) from(More)
The tetrahaem cytochrome isolated during anaerobic growth of Shewanella frigidimarina NCIMB400 is a small protein (86 residues) involved in electron transfer to Fe(III), which can be used as a terminal respiratory oxidant by this bacterium. A 3D solution structure model of the reduced form of the cytochrome has been determined using NMR data in order to(More)
This article describes a survey which established a link between qualified nursing staffs attitudes towards Project 2000 (P2000) courses and the the nature of their knowledge base of the local course. Several writers have noted that negative attitudes towards students in clinical practice have been expressed by qualified staff (Hobson 1992, Mangan 1992).(More)
