Abstract [en]

Aim The aim of the present study was to describe preceptors' expectations and experiences of participating in group supervision (GS). Background The challenging role of preceptors and their need for support is well known. Therefore, a collaborative project was carried out, providing GS to preceptors to strengthen them in their role. Method Data were collected from 48 preceptors by means of study-specific forms and field notes, and analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results Both positive and negative expectations and experiences of group supervision were found, but the positive experiences exceeded the expectations. The group in itself had a significant meaning for the preceptors; their pedagogical and personal competence increased and they became aware of their role as 'bridge-builders'. Conclusions Using GS to strengthen preceptors in their role was found to be successful. The findings provided new arguments for this model as a reflection tool. Implications for nursing management Strengthened preceptors can have an impact on nursing students' learning, and thereby also on future nurses' competence, which is a great concern of nurse managers. By using nurse lecturers as group leaders, the collaboration between the clinical placements and the nursing faculties can be improved.

Abstract [en]

Aims To identify clusters based on graduating nursing students' self-reported professional competence and their achievement on a national examination. Furthermore, to describe and compare the identified clusters regarding sample characteristics, students' perceptions of overall quality of the nursing programme, and students' general self-efficacy (GSE). Design A cross-sectional study combining survey data and results from a national examination. Methods Data were collected at two universities and one university college in Sweden in January 2017, including 179 students in the final term of the nursing programme. The study was based on the Nurse Professional Competence Scale, the GSE scale, and results from the National Clinical Final Examination. A two-step cluster analysis was used to identify competence profiles, followed by comparative analyses between clusters. Results Three clusters were identified illustrating students' different competence profiles. Students in Clusters 1 and 2 passed the examination, but differed in their self-assessments of competence, rating themselves under and above the overall median value, respectively. Students in Cluster 3 failed the examination but rated themselves at the overall median level or higher. Conclusion The study illustrates how nursing students' self-assessed competence might differ from competency assessed by examination, which is challenging for nursing education. Self-evaluation is a key learning outcome and is, in the long run, essential to patient safety. Impact The study has identified clusters of students where some overestimate and others underestimate their competence. Students who assessed their competence low but passed the exam assessed their GSE lower than other students. The findings illuminate the need for student-centred strategies in nursing education, including elements of self-assessment in relation to examination to make the students more aware of their clinical competence.
