The purpose of this study was to determine whether an online program, the Clinical Instructor Program (CIP), was helpful in improving feelings of efficacy for nurse clinicians in the role of clinical instructor. In addition, understanding of the clinical instructor role, knowledge of instructional content, and understanding of instructional strategies were evaluated before and after CIP participation. A primary finding of the study was that overall self-efficacy significantly improved.
