Title:

Abstract:
This presentation will discuss the development of an innovative model for clinical education in a Second-Entry Baccalaureate Program. While exposure to the clinical setting is an integral part of all nursing programs, systemic changes such as the increasing acuity of the patient population and the growing placement demands from other programs have put pressure on both health-care institutions and faculties of nursing to develop new ways of creating supportive learning environments for nursing students. Supportive learning environments enable students to focus on the application of evidence-based knowledge in the clinical setting thereby enhancing patient-centered care. In order to enhance the student experience in the clinical setting while addressing the real strains placed on institutions trying to provide opportunities for meaningful learning, the Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with partner agencies, initiated the ABC Placement Program (Agency Based Clinical). To illustrate the value of this model, we will highlight narratives from students, clinical instructors, and our clinical partners. We will present the advantages of the ABC Program from the stakeholders' perspectives, as well as discuss challenges and areas for improvement as we proceed with this innovative model for clinical education.
