ABSTRACT

Although nurse training has been undertaken for over two decades, holistic evaluation of clinical teaching has not been documented. The purpose of the study was to determine students and trainers perspectives on effectiveness in clinical training of nurses in Kenya. This was a descriptive survey. The target population was third year Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing Students, lecturers and the supervisors in the clinical training sites. The study should have included the community who are the recipients of the services but because of finance and time limitations, it was not possible. Fourteen KMTCs and fifteen institutions where students are placed for clinical experience was selected for the study. Self administered questionnaires were utilized. Data entry was done in EPI-info and SPSS version 12.0 was used for data analysis. Research results indicated that clinical training in across the three specialty areas of nursing is effective (221) 79% students, (174) 69% clinical supervisors and teachers (29) 70%; effectiveness in midwifery was (244) 87% students (194) 77% clinical supervisors and teachers (32) 75%; effectiveness in Community health nursing was (238) 85% students, (194) 77% clinical supervisors and teachers (32) 77%.
