Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Learning in clinical practice is an essential aspect of student nurse education yet debate persists in the United Kingdom regarding the role of the lecturer in supporting the student within clinical practice. This debate has been rekindled with developments in mentorship and establishment of a clinicalrole designed to facilitate and support mentors; the Practice Education Facilitator. Hence it is timely to re-examine the role of the lecturer in providing clinical support to students.
