Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify clinical competence and to analyze influencing factors on clinical competence for second year college nursing students. Methods: The data were collected from 183 students by means of self reported questionnaires with clinical competence, satisfaction of clinical practice experience, critical thinking disposition, and self-directed learning, on June 18th 2007 and June 25th 2008. Results: The influencing factors on clinical competence of nursing students were satisfaction of clinical practice experience and critical thinking disposition. The more adaptable a student`s major was, the higher the clinical competence and satisfaction of clinical practice experience. The score of self-directed learning was the highest in the well adapted group of a major. For clinical competence categories, the level of basic nursing was the highest followed by psychosocial nursing, patient education, nursing process, monitoring and patient physical assessment. The level of direct nursing care was the lowest among nursing students. Conclusion: In conclusion, results of this study suggest that constructing a cooperative system between colleges and educational hospitals, intensifying preceptors` and professors` clinical instruction, and developing a multimedia learning module and practice using simulators or standardized patient care is necessary to promote clinical competence of nursing students.

The Preceptor Orientation Self-Learning Education (POSE) module was developed as a teaching/learning tool for preparing nurses in their role as preceptors to senior nursing students in the clinical practice area. Findings from this pilot study suggest that the POSE module offered nurse preceptors an effective and convenient teaching/learning option in preparing them for their roles as clinical preceptors to student nurses. Results of this study can be used to enhance nursing education on precept...

Abstract The aim of the present study was to develop educational guidelines to be used as a tool for the integration of theory, research and practice to ensure that nursing knowledge and practical skills form the basis of academic nursing education. An additional aim was to describe the nursing competence expected of the students at four academic levels: introductory, intermediate and advanced levels I and II. Clinical nursing education plays a crucial role in assisting nursing students to integ...
: Self-directed learning modules are a popular option for providing continuing nursing education. Not all nurses are comfortable with this learning format. Nursing educators may be unfamiliar with strategies to facilitate self-directed learning. Self-directed learning is based on assumptions about adults as learners. Effectiveness and acceptance of the learning modules are enhanced by educational strategies that address these assumptions.

This study was designed to examine the relationship between preceptor/preceptee job satisfaction and preceptee clinical performance. A correlational descriptive design using quantitative data was employed through a mailed survey. Seventy-nine questionnaires were mailed to preceptors, 100 to preceptees. The response rate for preceptors was 49·4% while the response rate for preceptees was 33%. Herzberg’s theory served as the conceptual framework. Three baccalaureate schools of nursing in Atlantic ...

The aim of this study was to compare the learning effects of debriefing methods used in the simulation of prematurity care by measuring: (i) academic self-efficacy; (ii) confidence in performance; (iii) self-assessed communication skills; and (iv) satisfaction. We employed a quasi-experimental design with three experimental groups that experienced instructor-directed, self-directed, and video-assisted, self-directed debriefing, respectively. Participants were 146 senior nursing students from thr...
