Abstract

The aim of this study was to explore how an innovative clinical model could meet the requirements of Best Practice Clinical Learning Environment (BPCLE) framework. What emerged from the data was evidence that the innovative flexible clinical model met the key elements that are considered essential underpinnings for quality clinical learning environments. This model provided a new framework to understand the ways that students identify as nurses in clinical placements and show engagement in the workplace through practices of participation as well as non–participation. From the results it was noted that students were able to actively build on their knowledge and skills through interplay of existing expertise with new experiences. It was clear that this model established a partnership between key stakeholders developing communities of practice.
