AIM: To explore the first year midwifery students' clinical learning experience and satisfaction; to analyse the association between students' satisfaction and individual motivation. METHOD: The multicentre cross-sectional study was carried out in four Italian midwifery degree courses. A convenience sample of 61 students filled out the Italian version of the "Clinical Learning Environment and Supervision plus Nurse Teacher (CLES+T) scale" after the conclusion of their first clinical placement. RESULTS: The mean values of the main sub-dimensions of CLES+T varied from 3.53 (peda- gogical atmosphere) to 3.08 (supervisory relationship). Students (68.9%) were mainly sati- sfied with their clinical placement. With regard to individual motivation, 27 students (44.3%) were motivated at the beginning of the clinical placement, and 31 students (50.8%) were highly motivated. Highly motivated students showed higher satisfaction levels (␣2 = 11,712, p = 0.019). CONCLUSIONS: The findings expand knowledge on the first year midwifery students' clinical learning experience Moreover, the results showed an association between initial student moti- vation and satisfaction that should be investigated through further multicenter studies.

Abstract

AIM: To explore the first year midwifery students' clinical learning experience and satisfaction; to analyse the association between students' satisfaction and individual motivation. METHOD: The multicentre cross-sectional study was carried out in four Italian midwifery degree courses. A convenience sample of 61 students filled out the Italian version of the "Clinical Learning Environment and Supervision plus Nurse Teacher (CLES+T) scale" after the conclusion of their first clinical placement. RESULTS: The mean values of the main sub-dimensions of CLES+T varied from 3.53 (peda- gogical atmosphere) to 3.08 (supervisory relationship). Students (68.9%) were mainly sati- sfied with their clinical placement. With regard to individual motivation, 27 students (44.3%) were motivated at the beginning of the clinical placement, and 31 students (50.8%) were highly motivated. Highly motivated students showed higher satisfaction levels (␣2 = 11,712, p = 0.019). CONCLUSIONS: The findings expand knowledge on the first year midwifery students' clinical learning experience Moreover, the results showed an association between initial student moti- vation and satisfaction that should be investigated through further multicenter studies.
