dc.description.abstract The findings indicated that the professional background of clinical nurse instructors was inadequate for pursuing a teaching role since none of the clinical nurse instructors have specialized in nursing education and most of them do not have any training on clinical instruction and guidance.The findings also revealed that the guidance given to student nurse is inadequate, because it is mostly given on request. It further indicated that the clinical nurse instructors are insecure and lack self confidence, because they were unsure whether what they did is right or wrong en_US
