What is it about?
Nursing has often been maligned and criticized, both inside and outside of the profession, for its ability to understand and conduct effective health promotion and health education‐related activities. In the absence of an expert‐based consensus, nurses may find it difficult to progress beyond the current situation. In the absence of any previously published nursing‐related consensus research, this study seeks to fill that knowledge‐gap - through arriving at an expert consensus in relation to health promotion and health education constructs as they apply to nursing practice, education and policy.

Its findings represent an important step for nurses as they seek to become increasingly active and influential within wider health promotion and health education arenas.
