Abstract

There is an absence of information about the efficacy of teaching techniques specifically used toprepare nurse supervisors in clinical teaching and supervision of students during placement basedwork integrated learning (WIL). For nurse supervisors to gain an understanding of thestudent perspective, participants undertook continuing professional development interactivesimulation activities. This pre-post intervention study aimed to determine whether interactivesimulation as an intervention was effective for preparing registered nurses (n=60) to supportstudent learning during WIL. Furthermore, the research assessed whether the clinical reasoningcycle became integrated into nurse supervision practices on return to the workplace. There wasa significant increase in post-workshop skill ratings compared to pre-workshop for all 19-itemscores. At six-weeks follow-up, four items remained stable. For 15 of the 19 items there was astatistically significant downward shift in the spread of the data. However, median skill/knowledgescores were equivalent for 13 items. The findings showed inclusion of the clinical reasoning cycleusing the same pedagogical framework students would experience during interactive simulation,improved nurse supervisor’s skills and confidence ratings in the short-term. Further continuingprofessional development using interactive simulation may advance embedding of the theoreticalframework and promote knowledge and skill retention.
