Aim of the study: This study aims to explore and describe the views of the lecturers at a specific college regarding the implementation of clinical coaching of nursing students during pre-registration training.
Research design: The aim of the research will be addressed by exploring and describing the views of lecturers regarding the implementation of clinical coaching of nursing students. A constructivist grounded theory approach will be followed.
Methods: The researcher will collect data interactively with the participants through intensive interviews to gain an understanding of their views regarding the implementation of clinical coaching of nursing students. Ongoing comparative analysis of the data will be done; the existing data will determine the questions for further data collection; emerging categories will be formulated and theoretically saturated. Once the categories emerged from the data, a selective literature review will be done to determine how the findings fill the knowledge gap that led to the study.
Significance of the study: The findings of the study seek to bring new insight into the practice of clinical training of students in nursing science.
Conclusion: The clinical coaching of students to integrate theory in practice needs to be studied to provide theoretical knowledge that can lead to the planning and implementation of coaching programmes.
