Nursing degree programmes are currently facing demands for elements such as promoting the links between theory and clinical practice; reducing student drop-out rates; and stimulating and meeting the needs of students and recent nursing graduates in relation to teaching, development and research. With a view to meeting these demands, in a Danish context we have developed a model called Differentiated Teaching. Differentiated teaching is carried out in close collaboration between the teaching environment and the fields of clinical practice and research, and should be regarded as a way of providing students and recent nursing graduates with professional and personal opportunities for development.In this symposium we will present the background to the model, its inception in 2008, and its structure and content. We will also present the experiences gained since the model was first introduced and up until today.
