MCHIP initiated a nursing pre-service education (PSE) program in Lesotho in May 2010 to improve the quality of nurse- and midwife-delivered care. The program included support to the development of primary health care (PHC) clinical placements for trained nursing assistants and general nursing and midwifery students.
To expand on its anecdotal program evaluation, MCHIP conducted operational research on PHC clinical placements to provide evidence for use by schools, government, and donors. The aim of the research was to determine whether clinical placements prepared students and their preceptors to address Lesotho’s health priorities.
This study aims to understand the acceptability and usefulness of PHC clinical placements for nursing and midwifery students.
