This paper, written whilst the authors were working at Curtin University, Western Australia, describes a process of determining the psychomotor skills to be taught in an undergraduate nursing programme. It outlines how consultation with clinical agencies enhanced the planning of the skills component within the new nursing curriculum and details the outcomes in terms of faculty development and curriculum design
