Background: The Student Coaching in Practice (SCiP) approach, based on the OSCAR and GROW model of coaching, was implemented across three UK NHS Trusts in the West Midlands, involving seven placement areas which consisted of both acute and community hospital placement areas.
Aim: To explore the impact of a SCiP coaching approach on preparing students for their next stage of learning and perceived confidence.
Methods: Seventy nursing students across Years 1, 2 and 3 of their BSc (Hons) programme took part in the study through completing an evaluative survey consisting of both quantitative and qualitative responses. Ethical approval was obtained by the host University.
Findings: Participants across each year group found SCiP beneficial in developing learning and skills in practice, helped prepare for the next stage of learning or registration, and increased perceived confidence. Students in year 1 and year 3 of their nursing programme gave more positive responses. Implementing SCiP resulted in the expansion of placement capacity.
