I am a fairly new clinical instructor (2years), although I have been a nurse for 18. By nature, I see everybody as good until they show me otherwise. Right now I am strictly a clinical instructor, I do not teach any classes. Clinical instructors who also teach are telling me to watch out for certain students. They tell me that they are cheaters, etc. When I observe them in clinical they seem absolutely fine. I don't see them cheating or copying each others paperwork. I don't know if I can't see the cheating because I am a little gullible and naive, or if the other instructors are just accusing students based on what they see in class. This really has me second guessing myself. Does anybody else have this problem? How can new instructors spot cheating in the clinical setting?
