Abstract [en]

This article describes the experiences of 137 nursing students from their first clinical education.The material was collected with four open questions and was analyzed through qualitative content analysis. The descriptions focused on students’ experiences in general as well as their clinical education circumstances and learning experiences. They reported on the characteristics of their preceptors, the feedback, and the preceptorship culture on the ward. The students assessed their own learning from the perspectives of activity level, nursing procedures they had practiced, and personal development. Taking responsibility for their own learning was manifested as responsibility for learning according to the learning outcomes, an experience of having taken only a small amount of responsibility, and a desire to take part in all things possible
