Project-focused clinical placement: an innovative collaboration with health service providers in New Zealand

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Increased pressure on health budgets and a world-wide shortage of experienced Registered Nurses, especially in rural communities, combined with the increased clinical demands on nurses has had a significant impact on the ability of nurse education programmes to find appropriate placements for students. Many service providers are refusing to take students and/or asking for payment for supporting student nurses in the clinical area. As a consequence of this and changing methods of health care delivery it has become necessary to develop new and innovative placement models. In 2011 two non-traditional placement models were piloted: a Project-focused Clinical Placement approach, based on a model described by Fortune & McKinstry (2006), and a new concept developed for a nurse-led clinic called Student-led Clinical Facilitation model (Deans, 2011). This presentation will discuss an innovative collaboration between the Faculty of Nursing and local and national health service providers in New Zealand utilizing the placement approaches outlined above. The projects involved twenty 3rd year student nurses and produced a range of online resources that could be used by the service providers for staff development and/or patient education.
