The question ‘Which course shall I go on next?’ has become a familiar cry in hospital wards throughout the country. When the postregistration education and practice (PREP) guidelines were introduced it was never envisaged that this would create a new ethos of collecting certificates. There is a fundamental misconception among many nurses that in order to meet their PREP requirements they need to jump constantly from one course to the next.
