Dear all

Struggling with this search...

The questions we are trying to answer is "Has anyone done any research into what is the optimal length of placements for nursing students and how those placements are organised e.g. one day a week over a period of months or in chunks e.g. six weeks.?"

CP length/duration of stay is touched upon by a handful of papers (i.e. Levett-Jones 2008<>, Warne 2010<>), and queried by students (i.e.

Many guides/reports about CP arrangements/standards are available online (best ones from Australian HE sources), but the half dozen I ploughed through don't look at scheduling patterns. There could be something in the literature around Clinical Practice Coordinators, but it's not made visible by abstracts and blurbs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards
