Objective: Primary based health care is increasing. While student clinical placements in primary health care are not new, little is known about what students can learn and there is little evidence around the value they add to overall clinical learning. This study explored undergraduate nursing students experiences of learning in two primary health care settings: general practice and Royal District Nursing Service. Design: A qualitative design using semi-structured interviews and focus groups was chosen. Data were analysed thematically.
