Abstract

In dedicated education units (DEUs), nurses serving as clinical teaching partners (CTPs) provide formative feedback about student performance. The Creighton Competency Evaluation Instrument (C-CEI) has demonstrated validity and reliability by faculty in both the simulated and clinical environments. The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the content validity of the C-CEI in the direct patient care environment when used by staff nurses functioning as CTPs in the DEU setting. Results indicate that the items of the C-CEI demonstrated necessity, fittingness, and understanding. CTPs reported the C-CEI is a valid instrument for use in the DEU setting.
