Abstract
First paragraph: A career of some thirty years in mental health nursing practice and education, leads one to wonder have there been advances since Barker [1990] and Gournay [2001], amongst others, were discussing the role and identity of mental health nurses and the ideological tussle between the art and the science of mental health nursing. As a student nurse of the late 80’s brought up on a diet of Maudsley encounter groups, punctuated with clinical practice in nurse led teams, the tussle made sense. And still does.
