There are an increasing number of children with complex and continuing health needs. The aim is that wherever possible they and their families should be supported in a way which enables them to remain at home. A part of achieving this aim is increasing the competence and confidence which nursing staff have to provide such support. This paper reports on a pilot placement for pre registration nursing students focused on supporting children with complex needs in their homes. The major findings were that such a placement can be extremely beneficial in enabling students to develop practical skills and attitudes and values which will assist them to provide appropriate support. It also clarified some of eth major organisational and practical issues which must be considered in facilitating such placements.
