Abstract

This article presents a holistic view of re-designing learner-centred nursing curricula in a post-coronavirus pandemic digital educational system while maintaining authentic service user and carer involvement. Higher education is facing turbulent times through ever-increasing recruitment targets and financial demands. This is coupled with increased requirements from health professional bodies to involve students and service users and carers in co-creating curricula. Reflecting on the authors' collective experiences pre-COVID-19, during COVID-19 and looking to the future, they present a service user-and-student-led proposal for the future of digitally enabled nursing education that involves people with lived experience in an authentic way.
