Education, Regulation
This chapter explores in detail the regulatory perspective on clinical education in nursing and why boards of nursing take the position that nursing programs need to provide supervised clinical experiences for their students.  Some of the myths about regulatory barriers are dispelled, and some of the differences among boards are discussed.  Current issues, such as the regulatory perspective on simulation in prelicensure programs and the use of exit exams are also explored.  The importance of the collaboration between education, practice and regulation is integrated throughout.
