How to Promote Self-Confidence in Clinical Nursing Students

Most beginning clinical nursing students are apprehensive about their newly chosen career and the sometimes life-altering decisions it requires. It is up to educators to build lasting self-confidence in these students that they will possess throughout their nursing career.

The best way for instructors to promote self-confidence in clinical nursing students is by imparting the knowledge needed to complete the job correctly, helping students as they apply that knowledge, and supporting students despite mistakes.
