Surveying the Orientation Learning Needs of Clinical Nursing Instructors
The purpose of this study was to describe the knowledge and skills nurses need to be successful clinical instructors. A formal learning needs assessment was conducted to measure the orientation learning needs of new part-time clinical nursing faculty at one university. An existing, validated learning needs instrument was modified and administered online. The respondents (n=44; 16.6%) unanimously identified five essential learning needs for nursing clinical instructors, thus providing sound justification upon which to base an instructor orientation program. From these results, essential content for an orientation workshop to be followed by an online orientation course is outlined. Future research is needed to evaluate the outcomes of clinical instructor orientation; that is, whether participants have acquired the knowledge and skills needed to competently facilitate student learning in the clinical setting.
