Abstract

The study aimed to survey the problems/challenges nursing students of Hong Bang International University (HIU) reported facing in the clinical environment. These factors might be a barrier or motivation for a student's clinical learning. In addition, collecting the information through this research helped explore the real difficulties that might exist when students practice clinical care. This data will help to develop appropriate recommendations to improve the quality of training as well as reduce the burden on nursing students. A descriptive cross-sectional design was used. Sixty-nine third-year nursing students (58 females and 11 males) of the Bachelor of Nursing Program from HIU, Vietnam participated in answering the Vietnamese version of Clinical Learning Environment Inventory (V-CLEI) to provide an evaluation about the clinical learning environment (CLE). The results have shown a number of challenges and motivation for the students’ learning process in the CLE. The V-CLEI questionnaire was determined to be a reliable tool in this study. The result of the research indicated some challenges in the CLE for nursing students usually related to interpersonal relationships often with stakeholders or other health workers. Nursing students are not really aware of their role in clinical practice sessions, which could also become one of the barriers for this learning environment. Furthermore, students are less empowered and dominated by the work they do. However, a high appreciation for clinical instructors could be seen as a motivation to push the clinical learning process for nursing students in Vietnam.
