Seeking-out behavior: Criterion for success in clinical learning experiences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Seeking–out behavior, defined as a collective group of behaviors practiced by the nursing student when planning and implementing care for clients, is proposed as the successful criterion for clinical learning experiences. The author describes relevant attributes and implications of seeking-out behavior. A model of clinical teaching is proposed in which seeking-out behavior is a key concept. The model is evaluated using Fawcett's criteria of pragmatic adequacy.
