[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Background: The supervision of students in clinical training is an area of continuous discussion and subject of significant scientific production. It is important to bring new ideas into the debate to seek solutions to some of the problems we face today, especially as regards the development of innovative tools that facilitate the processes of supervision.
Nicklin describes a practice centered supervision model which has managerial, educational and supportive elements. The model outlines a six stage supervision cycle which incorporates practice analysis, problem identification, objective setting, planning, implementation of action and evaluation.
Objectives: To understand the perception of clinical supervisors about the use of the Nicklin Cycle in clinical supervision of nursing students.
Methods: Qualitative study. Data collection: interviews performed from May to December 2010.
Sample: 20 (1 male) nurses supervisors.
Findings: After analyzing the discourse produced by nurses, we concluded that: the applicability of Nicklin Cycle is important to decision make; its use is facilitated because it's a cycle of steps similar to those of the Nursing Process; it allows to structure the intervention of the supervisor which prints more rigor and quality to the developed supervision; provides greater objectivity in the analysis of practices, in identifying needs and problems in the students' development; facilitates and clarifies the planning and implementation of monitoring strategies and to assess the effectiveness of supervision and to recast the developed intervention. The lack of experience in the using the cycle was referred as a difficulty in the first uses of this instrument.
Conclusion: Our study is in accordance with those available from other works that described that the Nicklin Cycle is a good tool for peer supervision and proved that is an important instrument of work and solving problems in supervising students and is also an important strategy in students' supervision.
