An inquiry-based approach is applied throughout the programme, meaning that students are expected to actively explore aspects of the theory and practice of the different subject areas individually or in groups. The learning and teaching approaches used include PBL, case studies, self-study, dialogue education, project work, group work, reading groups, study questions and lectures. In addition, students practice their skills in the simulation and nursing lab. A portfolio is used to interlink the theoretical and clinical components of the programme. 6

7 6.0 Clinical Education Structure The purpose of the clinical component of the programme is to further subject-specific, personal and basic academic competences, so that the overall learning outcome of the programme can be achieved. The programme differentiates between practising skills, which takes place in the simulation and nursing lab, and clinical education, which take place in authorized clinical education settings, known as clinical placements. Practising clinical skills in the simulation and nursing lab. A skill is personal knowledge, which each individual perfects through practical exercises. The simulation and nursing lab replicates a ward, and is fitted with the same equipment found at clinical teaching facilities. Learning and teaching are based on research and development. Skills practice is patientcentred. Students are requested to critically reflect on their own performance. Clinical education in clinical placements. The education is arranged as a clinical practicum and a research practicum alternately, but occasionally simultaneously. Clinical practicum The purpose of the clinical practicum is for students to gain an overview of a patient s situation. Furthermore, the clinical practicum also offers students the opportunity to take on greater responsibility for care, see the outcome of their own assessments and actions and acquire a basis to adjust care, if necessary. Students will acquire nursing responsibilities corresponding to their level of education. A clinical practicum may span different wards and specialist areas. After each clinical practicum, students are required to prepare an oral or written evaluation of learning outcome and learning process. The outcome is evaluated by examining the patient care goals, and to what extent they were achieved. The process is evaluated by examining cooperation with the patient and assessing working methods and actions. Research practicum The purpose of the research practicum is for students to develop their ability to systematically examine research problems in specific areas of nursing in a clinical context. The research practicum also enables students to gain further insight into research methods, as well as strengthen their ability to present arguments orally and in writing. Students are required to draw up a written plan stating purpose, area of research, method and timetable. After each research practicum, students are required to prepare a written evaluation of learning outcome and learning process. Clinical and research practica may be enriched by participating in subject-specific lectures or congresses where relevant topics are discussed. 7

8 The research practicum may be arranged as observational 2, collaborative 3 or professionally oriented study 4. The clinical practicum may be arranged as collaborative or professionally oriented study. The number and characteristics of patients assigned to a student, as well as the student s degree of autonomy during a clinical practicum, will be defined individually for each student according to their relevant competences, the selected subject area and the complexity of nursing responsibilities involved. 2 Observational study means: that students shadow qualified nurses in order to observe their work while carrying out limited nursing responsibilities. Students have the opportunity to observe, describe and analyse nursing issues and questions in practice. This type of study is organized in relation to subjects and themes discussed in the theoretical component. 3 Collaborative study means: that students partake in and practice nursing together with qualified nurses.
