Supervision of Students

Nursing students have the opportunity to learn in a variety of clinical settings across the healthcare continuum.  The preceptor plays a key role in not only direct supervision to ensure competent, safe completion of specific skills, but also in guiding the students’ development within the clinical learning environment to promote self-awareness and critical thinking. 

In this module on supervision, you will:

  1. Review intentional learning experiences that facilitate clinical and professional development in students;
  2. Describe behaviors that facilitate student learning; and
  3. Apply micro-teaching strategies in a variety of preceptor-student interactions
