Teaching aims to introduce
the learner to the realities of social and professional life. In the context of
vocational education, these learning activities are confined to two interacting
poles, namely learning in a school situation (simulation) and that in a
clinical situation, that is to say next to the patient. The general objective
of this study was to raise the awareness of nursing supervisors to improve the
quality of the supervision they offer to trainee students in their professional
circles in order to overcome this challenge. We used a prospective,
cross-sectional descriptive study conducted at the university clinics in
Lubumbashi. The study found that 54% of the trainees were female, 46% male;
47.3% were between 21 and 25 years old and 24.3% between 31 and 35 years of
age; The attitude of the Trainees towards the trainee supervisors was distrustful
in 36% of the cases and Positive in 27%; Indifferent in 26% of cases. In relation
to the quality of the supervision, 38% of the students found this to be of poor
quality and 39% said that the quality was good. The supervision of students
seems to be a real challenge for all the care management of an institution and
for the educational institution that sent these trainees. The commitment of all
is necessary to carry out this mission of supervision of internstudents.
