Abstract

Despite a significant degree of academic and practitioner interest, the topic of Training Needs Analysis for Nurses (TNAN) remains underdeveloped. A key limitation is the fact that TNAN lacks a consistent conceptual periphery and an unequivocal proactive model. The specific contribution of the current paper is in developing a logical model of TNA for Nurses employed in health care organisations in Australia. In so doing we draw insights from a number of discreet literature bases. Thus, the paper should aid future research in the area of TNAN through (1) helping researchers to clarify the conceptual boundaries of TNAN and (2) providing a theoretical framework that could help researchers in framing their research efforts in the area.
