dc.description.abstract This is a descriptive exploratory study which aimed at assessing the involvement of the clinical professional nursing staff in students' clinical guidance. establishing student nurses' acceptance of clinical guidance offered by clinical professional nurses. identifying problems experienced by clinical registered nurses in clinical teaching. ascertaining perceptions that student nurses have about the quality of clinical teaching and guidance of clinical professional nurses, ascertaining perceptions that registered nurses have about the involvement of student nurses in their clinical learning. Questionnaires and focused group interviews were used to solicit the registered nurses' and student nurses' mutual perceptions regarding the registered nurses involvement in student nurses' clinical teaching and student nurses' involvement in their clinical learning. From the major findings of the study, it can be concluded that: A. The old regulation course diplomates accept their role as mentors for the new regulation course students, however they encounter problems therewith, with the student nurses looking down upon their qualifications. B. Some of the new regulation course students do look down upon the old regulation course diplomates. However, some of the problems have been identified as 'institutional' rather than 'interpersonal'. Therefore, the old regulation course diplomates perceive the new regulation course students as their mentees, but the new regulation course students do not accept them. Recommendations are that nurse educators should revisit their task of student accompaniment so that they identify problems encountered by clinical professional nurses in the clinical situation. Sisters in charge of wards should improve conditions in their wards/units which may hinder students' clinical instruction en_US
