The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been severe, particularly for the health and social care sector. For nursing students, this has caused major disruption and uncertainty to their studies. However, this exceptional situation has also created unique learning opportunities exposing students to unprecedented circumstances that offer new experiences and encourage resourcefulness and initiative in their practice as they transition to registered practice. This chapter has provided a fantastic opportunity to explore the experience of a final year undergraduate nursing module which took an innovative approach to learning about quality and service improvement. We will share with readers a snapshot of the experiences and reflections of nursing students who were learning and working through the initial waves of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK.
