The research problem was to describe baccalaureate nursing

students' perspectives of their clinical nursing leadership

experience. The study design was a qualitative descriptive one

using Colaizzi's phenomenologic method of protocol analysis.

Subjects included 27 senior nursing students who participated in a

clinical leadership experience. Data were collected via focused

interviews and student logs. An exhaustive description of the

investigated phenomenon was formulated.



The exhaustive description follows: Prior to the experience

students experienced anticipatory anxiety. While some of the

anxiety was diffuse, some resulted from anticipation of taking on

of role functions; the anxiety may have been heightened by their

inflated view of the responsibilities of the leader, by their

questioning of their ability to handle the role, and simply by the

unknown. Students held positive expectations.



During the experience, students' pre-experience expectations were

supported in some areas, and modified in others. They became aware

of available system supports, appreciated the responsibility of the

role, and recognized that leaders provide direct patient care.

Students felt like leaders when involved in activities as giving

and receiving report and by making assignments.



As a result of the experience, students demonstrated a degree of

cultural acclimation. They modified some pre-experience

perspectives and clarified their ideas resulting in a clearer

definition of the leadership role. They experienced an emerging

sense of confidence about their leadership and management skills.

A value system prizing professional nursing leadership needed for

managing care for a group of patients evolved. They emulated

leadership qualities in respected nurses, adding desirable ones to

their repertoire of skills. They had to acquire entrance into the

system and be actively involved in practicing activities to acquire

the skills.



Findings are significant for educators who plan leadership

experiences.
