Purpose: To explore nursing students’ perceptions of their clinical learning experiences in the mental health (MH) setting. Design and Methods: Secondary analysis of data collected within an Italian national cross-sectional study involving students (N = 9607) who were attending 95 3-year baccalaureate nursing programs. Findings: Students in MH settings scored the quality of the learning environment overall significantly higher (P =.008) compared to those who rotated in other clinical settings, specifically with respect to (a) the tutorial strategies’ quality; (b) the learning opportunities; and (c) the learning environment's quality. Practice Implications: MH settings emerged as a worthy clinical environment where less pressing rhythms allow preceptors to provide students more learning opportunities that, in turn, affect the perceived degree of competence achieved and the desire to work in these contexts after graduation.

Abstract

Purpose: To explore nursing students’ perceptions of their clinical learning experiences in the mental health (MH) setting. Design and Methods: Secondary analysis of data collected within an Italian national cross-sectional study involving students (N = 9607) who were attending 95 3-year baccalaureate nursing programs. Findings: Students in MH settings scored the quality of the learning environment overall significantly higher (P =.008) compared to those who rotated in other clinical settings, specifically with respect to (a) the tutorial strategies’ quality; (b) the learning opportunities; and (c) the learning environment's quality. Practice Implications: MH settings emerged as a worthy clinical environment where less pressing rhythms allow preceptors to provide students more learning opportunities that, in turn, affect the perceived degree of competence achieved and the desire to work in these contexts after graduation.
