Using stories to understand clinical placement learning: a pilot study
Keywords:Clinical placement, stories, learning needs, student nurses
AbstractThis pilot study explored the value of story writing to understand the learning needs of undergraduate nursing students during their first clinical placement. Early findings suggest that story writing affords freedom to express ideas and feelings, and could be used as an additional method alongside the current placement evaluation questionnaire to understand students learning needs.
