Abstract: 

Background: Clinical training is a critical component of nursing program. Preceptorship program might be effective in improving nursing students’ professional competencies by providing a suitable learning environment. In addition, learners with better self-concept may be more likely to succeed. This study aimed to determine nursing students' academic self-concept and their understanding of learning climate after experiencing preceptorship program and assess the correlation between these two variables.
Methods: This cross-sectional, correlational study was performed on the nursing students who had experienced preceptorship program. The data were collected by academic self-concept scale and learning climate questionnaire. Then, the data were entered into the SPSS statistical software, version 20 and were analyzed using t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson’s correlation coefficient.
Results: The results showed that the nursing students' mean score of academic self-concept was 108.86±10.01 after experiencing preceptorship program. This means that the students' mean score of self-concept was higher than two-thirds of the expected total score. Besides, the mean score of learning climate was 77.49±17.52, which was higher than two-thirds of the expected score. Moreover, learning climate was associated with marital status and educational term, such a way that married students and those in the 7th and 8th terms had a better understanding of learning climate. However, no significant correlation was found between academic self-concept and learning climate after the preceptorship program (r=0.18, p=0.16).
Conclusion: The findings of this study indicated that the students’ mean score of self-concept and perception of learning climate after experiencing the preceptorship program were higher than two-thirds of the expected score. Therefore, this program is suggested to be used in nursing education. Yet, further studies have to be conducted to recognize the strengths and weaknesses of the program.
