Abstract

A bedside clinic is a process in which a clinical teacher and a group of learners sees a patient, elicits or verifies physical signs, discusses provisional diagnosis, diagnostic or therapeutic options in the clinical setting. The purpose of bedside clinic is to improve the quality of nursing care, to improve the student’s ability to solve nursing problems by detailed study and analysis of nursing situation, to realize the need for understanding every patient as an individual and appreciate their problems and outlook, and provides a learning experience for nursing students to collect information about the patient. Bedside clinic allows the students to prepare extensively in advance to participate effectively in patient care. It helps the students to develop autonomy. Bedside clinic allows the students to develop and maintain professional competence.
