Abstract [en]


Background: As a nurse it is a part of your work description to precepting students. A good relationship between preceptor and student is important for a successful precepting witch can be rewarding for both parties. There are many studies on how nurses in hospital departments experience precepting students, however it is not as explored in the prehospital care.

Objective: To describe ambulance nurses' experience of precepting nursing students in the third and final year of university-level nursing school.

Method: A qualitative study was conducted. Nine respondents at two ambulance stations in central Sweden were selected with the help of strategic convenience sample. The informants were nurses with specialist education in ambulance/prehospital care who had experience of working in the ambulance unit for at least a year.

Result: The majority of participants were positive to precepting students and the time seemed adequate. Primarily in emergency situations the nurses felt that there was not enough time. Despite this, the nurses felt that this wasn’t a problem since they usually had time afterwards to talk and reflect over the expired events. However, many felt that because of the short internship it was hard to get to know the students, which led to an uncertainty in letting the student take care of the patient in certain situations.

Conclusion: The study shows new results regarding ambulance nurse's perception of the supervision process. The study also shows differences between supervision in emergency medical services and ward care. This shows that the results from studies of the tutorial are not directly transferable to the prehospital care. Larger studies with more variation among the participants would be able to raise additional aspects in the precepting area.
