Abstract
The aim of this research was to identify whether the COVID-19 pandemic, which affected nurses and nursing education from 2020 through to present times, impacted student nurses’ perceptions of their clinical experience during this time. The initial premise was based on anecdotal conversations with students who were expressing their displeasure with how they were being treated in the clinical areas, and the learning experiences which had changed with the introduction of new clinical placements. This research found that the pandemic did not impact students’ perception of the value of their clinical placement, which is reassuring for clinical and academic management.
