Abstract [en]

It can be challenging for nursing students to navigate between theory and practice and to implement theoretical knowledge in real work situations and vice-versa. Work-integrated learning can support the students by enabling them to combine theoretical studies with practical work experience during their clinical placement. The aim of this integrative literature review was to identify models for the integration of theory and practice during clinical placements in nursing education by using work-integrated learning. Sixteen articles were found and analyzed using an integrative review method. Three themes were identified: 1) Supervisor support to enable students to develop a professional identity 2) Variety of modalities for teaching and 3) Collaboration between academic lecturers and clinical supervisors aimed at integrating theoretical and practical knowledge. Work-integrated learning enables students to integrate theory and practice, develop skills for knowledge-in practice and prepares them for working life. It also supports the sharing of experiences between various healthcare professionals. This review identified a need for further research on work-integrated learning as a method for enhancing nursing students’ workplace learning.
