dc.description.abstract An effective learning climate is described as being humanistic, authentic, supportive and caring. Both the nurse educators and the institution alike therefore have a key responsibility to provide a caring environment that offers optimal learning opportunities for their students. Nevertheless, in biannual student forums anecdotal comments from the students, sometimes emotion laden and without specific detail, challenges have been identified regarding the learning climate. It was thus evident that problems relating to the learning climate existed among students and that these problems needed to be investigated and documented. The aim of this study was to explore the perceptions of Nursing and Radiography students about their learning climate during the course of their studies at the School of Nursing on the Windhoek campus of the University of Namibia. A quantitative, descriptive and analytical study was conducted during October 2013. The population included all the Nursing and Radiography students enrolled for that academic year at the School of Nursing. A questionnaire that focused on various aspects of the learning climate and support was used after pilot test. Ethical considerations were adhered to. Six of the eleven items discussed obtained a median score of less than 2.5 out of a possible 5, which is regarded as less than average. Suitable recommendations were subsequently submitted en_US
