Abstract This Australian study explored the extent to which solution focused nursing (SFN), a new philosophy of care underpinning a Bachelor of Nursing Programme, was understood by students and staff. Students and faculty perceptions of teaching and learning were explored using survey and semi-structured interview methods. The results showed that students did not have strong views about whether solutions or problems contribute best to a definition of nursing knowledge, but there were some differences between the year groups. This was hypothesised to be related to the way SFN is or is not being taught. Teachers were generally positive about SFN but perceived that they needed more education on the philosophy to ensure it could be translated into their teaching. A teaching and learning package is recommended to be produced and made available to all teachers within the program.
