Abstract

Clinical accompaniment is essential to provide nursing students with a foundation to apply to practice. This study aimed to explore the e-PJJ nursing students' perception regarding their clinical accompaniment during their clinical placement. This qualitative phenomenology study was conducted using in-depth interviews and focus group discussion among eleven Bachelor of Nursing (e-PJJ) students. This study revealed three themes: Supervision in Clinical Placement; Student-centered Learning, and Feeling Stress as a Distance Learner. The need for clinical accompaniment among e-PJJ students was minimal, but they required written guidelines to facilitate them during a clinical attachment.

Keywords: Experience, clinical accompaniment, distance learners, qualitative study.
