Abstract: Many scholars of nursing education have highlighted difficulties related to clinical evaluation arising from the complexity of the clinical environment. Clinical evaluation has been the focus of many work improvement projects as nurse educators struggle with various issues arising from the subjective nature of clinical observation of students’ practice and the complex role of clinical instructors as both teacher and assessors. My research on the issues that relate to the assessment of students’ clinical performance is aimed at gaining a better understanding of the unique and context- dependent nature of clinical practice situations. An action research approach with two cycles of planning, action, evaluation and reflection were undertaken to investigate the process of clinical evaluation as experienced by nurse-educators in Nanyang Polytechnic. The data collection methods include document review, a questionnaire, self-reflection of nurse educators and focus group discussions during the clinical review workshops.
