This thesis presents a study of perceptions held by practicing nurses of effective clinical teaching behaviors (ECTB). Previous research on ECTB of clinical nurse teachers have concentrated on the perceptions held by nursing students and nursing teachers. King's Conceptual Framework forms the theoretical basis for the argument that perceptions of ECTB held by practicing nurses are also important. The data was derived from an anonymous questionnaire completed by practicing nurses employed at two community hospitals in southwestern Michigan. Respondents felt that "demonstrates skills, attitudes, and values that are to be developed by the student" was the most important ECTB from a list of 25 behaviors as presented by Fong and McCauley (1993). Complete results are presented with discussion and recommendations for further study.
