Abstract:

Poster presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013, Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The student nurses' assessments of the clinical environment in which they are practicing and the factors that influence the clinical education are very important in terms of nursing education. This research conducted as a descriptive study for the purpose of investigating of the student nurses' assessments on the clinical learning environments.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: “Information Form” , "Dunn and Burnett Clinical Learning Environment Scale" applied to the 2nd grade (n = 104) - 4th grade (n = 75) students of GMMA School of Nursing between November 2011-January 2012. Being a student for attending to the study, being with clinical practice at least 3 days was required in selection of students. SPSS 15.0 program, descriptive statistics were used to analyze the reliability - the significance of the difference between two means.

RESULTS: A total scale score (p = 0.030), hierarchy and routines (p = 0.002), the staff-student relationships (p = 0.044), the responsibilities of teaching staff (p <0.001), and student satisfaction (p = 0.010), 4th grade students gained scores higher than 2nd grade students as statistically significant in lower dimension. Scores of students who know about their choice of nursing profession (p = 0.017), and the students who were informed before practice (p = 0.001) were significantly higher. A positive correlation was found between scale score and the rate of satisfaction with studying at School of Nursing and presuming the profession was suitable for them (r = -0347, p <0.001, r = -0284, p <0.001).

CONCLUSIONS: Positive thoughts about the profession, presuming their job was suitable for them and the necessary explanations before practice was positively influences the students' evaluations of the clinical environment. It is recommended that these studies be conducted in order to improve the quality of clinical education which has important role in nursing education and to increase the awareness of educators.
