The Lived Experience of Staff Nurses Working with Undergraduate Nursing Students in the Clinical Setting
The purpose of this thesis project is to design a qualitative, descriptive, phenomenological study, which would explore the lived experience of staff nurses who worked with nursing students in the clinical setting.
Student nurses spend valuable, yet limited amount of time in their clinical facilities to bridge the gap between theory and practical application. They work closely with staff nurses in shift-long days, providing care and participating in patients’ diagnostic and therapeutic regimen. These same staff nurses come with a myriad of experiences from having worked with students throughout their careers. These experiences, exhibited positively or negatively, greatly impact the learning potential of the students who learn from them.
