Abstract

The purpose of this research was to conduct an exploratory study to identify Clinical Instructors’ (CI) perceptions of the importance of the WHO competency domains and the importance of these competency domains to their current clinical teaching role in a baccalaureate nursing program in a southwestern Ontario university. A sample of 27 CIs participated in the study to evaluate the importance and implementation of the WHO competencies. The results were analyzed using Wilcoxan Signed Ranks. The findings suggest that 36 out of 37 of the competencies were considered important to the CI role and they implemented these competencies in their practice, but they need to be adapted to the CI-specific role.
