[Research Presentation] Background: In our country there are few studies that evaluate teachers whom teach in the clinical settings. Purpose: Clinical teaching is a fundamental strategy to promote practical knowledge, in order to accomplish it, then a profile that promotes significant learning is required. This study focused on exploring the clinicalá teacher's attributes from the students perspective by quantitative and qualitative ways. Methods: An observational, transversal, prolective and comparative study was done in a sample of 372 nursing bachelor ástudents. The variables of study were: knowledge and clinical competence of the subject, interpersonal relationships with the students, teaching skills, evaluation strategies and personal characteristics. To gather the information, Nursing Clinical TeacheráEffectiveness Inventory, by Knox and Mogan (1985), was used. However, for the purposes of this study, it was modified by Perez and Moran (2004). Foráthe qualitative approach four nursing bachelor advanced students were interviewed. The analysis of text with open and axial coding was made. Findings: Statistically meaningful differences were found in the variables of study, the students gave a higher score to the professors that work simultaneously at the hospital, also to those that have a higher academic level. In the qualitative sense, three themes were identified: Aptitudes for clinical teaching; Positive and negative clinical teacher attitudes that affects clinical learning; and Clinical settingsáfactors that affect the clinical teaching and learning. Conclusions: Some consistent factors regarding reported studies in literature were found, except in the evaluation strategies dimension. Fourth semester students give professors lower score in all the variables with statistically differences. The instrument used allowed to identify the clinical teacher's attributes and it can be used to assess their áperformance.áBesides this, the students perceive clinical settingsá factorsá that affect clinical teaching and learning.
