The reviewed study reaches out to nurses in clinical practice to seek their views on an important development for the profession: the introduction of nursing specialisation in a country where it is not yet established. The nurses responding to the researchers’ questions demonstrate that they recognise the value of nurse specialists and their potential to impact not only on the profession but also on the quality of care. The invitation for nurses to voice their opinions and suggestions on developing nurse specialists has demonstrated a willingness of academic staff to listen and be open to suggestions. I view this as a potential significant step towards linking academic and clinical staff towards realising their goal.
