Abstract [en]

Background:  Supervision refers to guidance, support and assessment of nursing students and is also a way of developing and learning from experience. Supervision links theory and practice, improves patient care and strengthens the students’ practice and their future profession.

 

Aim:Describe nursing students’ experiences of supervision during their clinical practice in Ilembula, Tanzania.

 

Method: Qualitative study where focus group interviews were used for data collection. The focus groups consisted of four students in one group and three students each in the remaining three groups, total of 13 participants. The interviews were transcribed into text and analyzed with qualitative content analysis. 

 

Results:  The result was divided into three categories with associated subcategories. The categories consisted of “Supervision is a process of leading”, “Supervision contributes to competence” and “Supervision generates mixed feelings”.

 

Conclusions:  The students were satisfied with the supervision during clinical practice. Although, they found it difficult when there were misunderstandings with their supervisor. Commonly, the students felt that supervision made them confident towards their future as nurses. Supervision is an important part of nursing and benefits both students, nurses and patients.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Handledning avser vägledning, stöd och bedömning av sjuksköterskestudenter och är också ett sätt att utvecklas och lära av erfarenhet. Handledning hjälper till att koppla samman teori och praktik, att förbättra patientvården samt att stärka studenternas praktik och deras kommande yrkesroll.

Syfte: Beskriva sjuksköterskestudenters erfarenheter av handledning under sin praktik i Ilembula, Tanzania.Metod: Denna studie baserades på kvalitativa metoder där fokusgruppsintervjuer användes för datainsamling. Fokusgrupperna bestod av fyra studenter i en grupp och tre studenter i de resterande tre grupperna, totalt 13 deltagare. Intervjuerna transkriberades till text och analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat: Resultatet delades upp i tre kategorier med tillhörande subkategorier. De sammanställda kategorierna innehöll: “Handledning är en ledarskapsprocess” “Handledning bidrar till kompetens” och “Handledning genererar i blandade känslor”.

Slutsats: Studenterna var nöjda med handledningen de fick under deras praktik. Dock fanns det svårigheter när det uppkom missförstånd mellan studenterna och handledaren. Gemensamt kände studenterna att handledningen fick dem att känna sig säkra inför sin framtid som sjuksköterskor. Handledning är en viktig del av omvårdnaden och gynnar både studenter, sjuksköterskor och patienter.
