Abstract

Learning through clinical experience forms an integral part of student nurses’ academic and professional foundation. The extent to which learning is facilitated for student nurses is determined by the structuring of the field of clinical experience as well as by student nurses’ perception of the field of clinical experience. The purpose of this study is to dertermine student nurses’ perception of factors in the field of general clinical experience which facilitate learning. Literature pertaining to factors in the field of general clinical experience which impact on the learning by students was studied. A descriptive, exploratory survey was done through the medium of a questionnare completed by B.Cur-students. The results of this study indicate, despite the fact that student nurses experience some aspects pertaining to learning in the general clinical field negatively, their overall impression is positive and favourable. Factors restraining learning were identified. Recommendations are made to counter the restraining factors.
