Abstract

The clinical role of the nurse teacher: a conceptual framework

A small scale qualitative study explored the clinical role of the nurse teacher and concluded by proposing a conceptual framework that seeks to illustrate how nurse teachers manage the clinical aspect of their work. Three conceptual categories (role clarity, fitting in and role justification) are proposed as a means of describing how the respondents approached their clinical role.
