Within the community of nursing, the topic of clinical credibility and what exactly
this means for the nurse lecturer, has been widely debated and discussed in research over the past few
decades. Providing hands-on care is not required for nurses to revalidate and stay on the Nursing and
Midwifery Council (NMC) register. Being active in practice, delivering hands-on care is not often
connected with a nurse lecturer’s appraisal and progression process. Without either a recognised
definition or formal framework for clinical
credibility, there is confusion, which continues to
fuel the debate (Ousey and Gallagher, 2010).
