This article explores the current challenges in maintaining community nursing placements as dynamic learning experiences for student nurses during the current pandemic and beyond. Opportunities to create new ways of working and learning are essential to ensure student nurses can continue to be exposed to community nursing care. Developing insight, understanding, knowledge and skills in this unique learning environment is instrumental to encourage the next generation of Community Nurses and increase the future workforce. Suggestions for alternative ways of providing learning experiences during this current period are discussed, which could also be embedded as future strategies in the long term
