Developing competency in clinical decision-making involves the use of multiple resources within the clinical setting. The purpose of this descriptive study was to investigate patterns of resource usage by student nurses when confronted with challenging clinical decision-making situations. The novice-to-expert research indicates that complexity of clinical situations combined with inexperience of the novice or advanced beginner necessitates reliance on multiple resources to make clinical decisions. Third year baccalaureate students (n=145) participated in the study. Students described a challenging hospital based clinical situation and provided information about resources used in making the clinical decision. Ninety five percent of the students consulted with one or more individuals and/or used other resources in making their clinical decision. Staff nurses, preceptors, nurse managers, physicians, patients, families, physician order sheets, drug reference books, policy/procedure manuals, client teaching information, Internet information sites, and nursing textbooks were student identified resources. Significant correlations were found among student satisfaction with their clinical decision making outcome and use of resource individuals. Conclusions were that students in a clinical experience encounter multiple clinical decision-making opportunities, and that a variety of human and environmental resources must be readily available to support the development of their decision-making skills.
