Abstract

Background: While nursing education has been forecast to continue to grow, placement capacity is now the key factor which precludes growth in supply.
Aims: This paper sought to provide a comprehensive understanding of hub and spoke placements and their ability to increase placement capacity.
Methods: A systematic scoping review and narrative synthesis were utilised (Arksey and O’Malley 2005). PRISMA checklist and ENTREQ reporting guidelines were followed.
Findings: The search returned 418 results. After a first and second screen, 11 papers were included. Results suggest that hub and spoke models were generally evaluated favourably by nursing students, with a range of benefits reported. However, many of the studies included in this review were small and of low quality.
Conclusion: Given the exponential increase in applications to study nursing, hub and spoke placements appear to have the potential to better meet these increased demands while also providing a number of benefits.
