Abstract

Introduction: Clinical education is a complicated process which may be affected by
different factors and variables. Therefore, recognizing the current situation and
problems is the first step to minimize these factors. The aim of this study was to
determine the viewpoints of nursing and midwifery students in Hormozgan
University of Medical Sciences about problems that they have encountered in clinical
education.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 59 bachelor nursing and midwifery students
who were in their last semester were involved. The data were collected using a
questionnaire with three parts: demographic data; clinical education problems
(measured by Likert scale); and one open question related to clinical education
problems. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS (ver. 13) software.
Results: The most important problems in clinical education were lack of welfare
facilities (71.2%), lack of proper clinical environments (39%), lack of educational
aids (37.3%), lack of facilities in clinical environments (35.6%) and lack of skilled
clinical trainers (35.6%).
Conclusion: According to our findings, it is recommended to provide enough
facilities and equipments for students in clinical environments and also to employ
expert clinical trainers to improve quality of education.
