Abstract

Maximizing student clinical schedules involves a range of nurse educator activities including scheduling, placement, and learning activity construction. The purpose of this study was to compare opportunities for students to develop their psychomotor skills on the clinical unit and perceptions of clinical experiences across 6-hour day, 6-hour evening, and 12-hour day schedules in an acute care setting. The main finding was that 12-hour schedules provided an overall significantly higher rate of skill opportunities than either of the other 6-hour schedules.
