Útdráttur

The aim of this study was to develop a valid assessment tool to guide clinical education and evaluate students’ performance in clinical nursing education. The development of the Clinical Assessment Tool for Nursing Education (CAT-NE) was based on the theory of nursing as professional caring and the Bologna learning outcomes. Benson and Clark’s four steps of instrument development and validation guided the development and assessment of the tool. A mixed-methods approach with individual structured cognitive interviewing and quantitative assessments was used to validate the tool. Supervisory teachers, a pedagogical consultant, clinical expert teachers, clinical teachers, and nursing students at the University of Akureyri in Iceland participated in the process.

This assessment tool is valid to assess the clinical performance of nursing students; it consists of rubrics that list the criteria for the students’ expected performance. According to the students and their clinical teachers, the assessment tool clarified learning objectives, enhanced the focus of the assessment process, and made evaluation more objective. Training clinical teachers on how to assess students’ performances in clinical studies and use the tool enhanced the quality of clinical assessment in nursing education.
