Men learning nursing as a job

Abstract [en]

This paper describes a practical example of boundary crossing collaboration and innovative solutions in a community development project in north of Sweden. The idea was to develop job opportunities in a region which had suffered redundancies due to restructuring. Community stakeholders such as local authorities, education agencies, labour market offices, county commissioners, and public healthcare employers worked together to develop favourable conditions for regional development. Introducing new learning initiatives by adapting learning techniques to untraditional learners were part of the innovative solutions. Workplace learning was used as a method to prepare and inspire older unemployed men to work in healthcare. Individual competencies where strengthened as a mean to develop individual employability
